Yup it's a bad one. I believe that Wellness is removing or maybe already has removed it from the food but has to use up the packaging before they can make new packaging that says that it doesn't have it in it, but the food that's in the current bags may not have the MSB in it. You should email them to find out for sure though.

Wellness just came out with new formulas, and has one called Core. Supposed to be good, unsure of the K thing though.

I'm not sure about the cat food though. When you get a reply from them could you please post it here. Thanks. :)

they replied that they have removed the Vit k from the kitten formula

"Dear Jane:

Menadione is no longer an ingredient used in those formulas.
