The European Commission has recently issued a new regulation affecting Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland preventing usage of E171 (an additive containing titanium dioxide) that will come into force in June 20, 2022. After reviewing the evidence, the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food Standards Scotland (FSS) did not identify any safety concerns and will not follow the European Union in banning titanium dioxide as a food additive at this time. This additive is widely used in human pharmaceutical as well as animal nutrition products and has been for many years.
This new regulation affects our brand Zylkene® since E171 is present in the capsule ‘shell’, however E171 is not present in the powder.
In response to this new EC regulation, Vetoquinol have issued updated guidance to instruct pet owners to open the capsule and sprinkle the powder onto the food or on a treat. This clear guidance on how to administer Zylkene® should address any safety concern.
Unfortunately, we are unable to continue supplying the Zylkene® 20 pack to Northern Ireland customers until further notice as this packaging/labeling has not been changed.
Zylkene is a complementary feeding stuff for both cats and dogs; it contains a natural product, derived from casein, a protein in milk. It can be used for both dogs and cats to give owners the power to help their pets cope with different situations, such as the introduction of a new pet, new baby, house moves, multi-animal households, cattery or kennel stays, travelling, fireworks/loud noises, home alone or travel anxieties.
