Flaxseed is not recommended for people to eat by the National Food Agency in Sweden. I believe flaxseed oil is also banned in France So why are USA food manufacturers putting it in our cat food. It puts cyanide into the cat food. I sent cans of Lotus Just Juicy Rabbit to a lab who forwarded it to a specialist food testing lab and I consulted Rhian Cope, principle toxicologist for the country of Australia, the toxicologist who wrote the chapter in Merck Veterinary Manual on cyanide poisoning in animals. The cyanide from Flaxseed was found in the cat food to be .3ppm (parts per million) too much for a cat under ten lbs. I wrote Lotus about it but they did nothing. I was told my cat could eat only one can (“tin”) a day but who wants to feed their cat cyanide?! I wrote animal food regulators and they did nothing. If you have flaxseed in your canned cat food have it tested and see how much cyanide is in it. Manufacturers should be testing their product. More of us need to pressure regulators to do their job!!!
