The government has been notified to warn wholesalers, vets, retailers and pet owners that Bio-Tech Solutions has recalled:
The Armitage Pet Care brand is usually sold in local pet shops, supermarkets and online stores like Amazon, Ebay and others. Even small quantities of permethrin can cause severe, fatal poisoning in cats so please warn anyone that you know of who has cats.
Anyone who has this product should not use it and either contact Armitage Pet Care or Bio-Tech Solution - details available here.
If you have applied this product to a cat then contact your vet without delay. Read more about the signs of Permethrin Poisoning and sign the petition to better regulate the sale of products containing this cat toxin.... Kill the flea, not the cat!
Remember that by purchasing a more expensive flea product from a vet, you are actually buying product advice and aftersales service as well as peace of mind in the event of any product recalls.
UPDATE from Armitage Pet Care 16/11/2016
At the end of October we were made aware that one packet of Armitage Pet Care Flea Drops for Cat & Kittens contained the wrong product. The VMD were immediately notified of this packing error and we have followed VMD guidance concerning the product recall and communications to ensure that our customers were notified and provided with information to enable them to make their customers aware. A full recall was issued as a precautionary step due to the seriousness of the packing error and all stock within our warehouses has been subject to a full quality inspection. No other packaging errors have been found with our stock, or with products being returned by customers.
