On the Foods Standards Agency website it states that the food recall is Northern Ireland and Wales specific.
In its Product Recall Notice, the company stated:
"Natural Instinct has been informed by the Foods Standards Agency that our supplier of the venison offal used ONLY in our Wild Venison Natural Cat Food 250g & 500g has not had the offal inspected in line with legal requirements.

"Natural Instinct takes its obligations regarding pet food safety very seriously and requires its suppliers to comply with the appropriate legal requirements.
"Natural Instinct has therefore agreed with the Food Standards Agency to undertake a recall out Wild Venison Natural Cat Food product."
Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.
