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.

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

"Dear Jane:

Thank you for taking the time to write about Complete Health Kitten.

Menadione is no longer an ingredient used in those formulas.

Thanks again for contacting us."
