Evo Cat Food & Hairballs

Well after trying a few brands, my three cats have been on the Evo for a few months now. They all love it! Problem is one of them seems to be getting a lot of hairballs on it. Before I would find the odd hair ball, but now its almost daily or every other day I find a new one. Problem is I cant tell which cat its coming from as its usually done during the night or during the day when I'm at work.

thing is, I'm not sure if the food is related to the hairballs or not. I'm unsure what to do here. Switch foods again, and hope it goes away, or less frequence, or just ignore the hairballs and chalk it up to normal cat behaviour? Finding a quality food all three like is a pita! So I'm hesitant at going that route.

suggestions?

just wanted to update this. The hairballs have ceased. The culprete. Wysong Dentatreat! The nice lady at Global convinced me to give it ago. It never occured to me that maybe this could have been the problem, but once I thought about it, I stopped giving it to them and the hairballs have stopped!

Ahh... I was just about to answer the first post... I thought maybe it wasn't enough fiber in the diet, but I guess it's the other way around.
