Tickets just went on sale for the Amity Spring Musical “Catch Me If You Can” and many of the best seats already are sold.

Tickets are only $18, you can’t go wrong with a price like that. Log On for ticket sales HERE.

About the show:

Based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set in the 1960s. We begin as Frank Abagnale Jr. is captured by Agent Carl Hanratty after years of pursuit.

Frank, however, thinks we deserve to hear his version of the truth and narrates his life as a hip, dance-heavy variety TV show. We see a teenage Frank run away from his unhappy home to live a life of adventure, conning people by assuming a multitude of identities, including an airplane pilot, doctor, and lawyer.

Catch Me If You Can tells the tale of an ingenious, yet lonely, boy looking for his place in the world.

You may remember the movie starring Leonardo Decaprio as Frank, Tom Hanks as Carl and Christopher Walken as Frank Sr.

Amity Musicals are known as some of the finest in the region having won top awards in the past 11 years for “Musical,” “Actor,” “Actress,” “Supporting Actor,” “Supporting Actress,” “Musical Direction,” “Orchestra,” “Director,” and so much more.

Don’t delay, this show will sell out, and you will miss out if you don’t hurry.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition Voluntarily Recalls Select Canned Dog Food for Excessive Vitamin D

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Hill’s Pet Nutrition Voluntarily Recalls Select Canned Dog Food for Excessive Vitamin D
Feb 072019
 

Hill’s Pet Nutrition has voluntarily recalled select varieties of its canned dog food after discovering excessive vitamin D in the products. Following is a press release and product list:

In the United States, the affected canned dog foods were distributed through retail pet stores and veterinary clinics nationwide.  No dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.

Pet parents who purchased the product with the specific lot/date codes listed should discontinue feeding and dispose of those products immediately or return unopened product to your retailer for a refund.   For more information, please contact Hill’s via our website or at 1-800-445-5777.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition learned of the potential for elevated vitamin D levels in some of our canned dog foods after receiving a complaint in the United States about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels.  Our investigation confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D due to a supplier error. 

We care deeply about all pets and are committed to providing pet parents with safe and high-quality products.  Hill’s has identified and isolated the error and, to prevent this from happening again, we have required our supplier to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients.  In addition to our existing safety processes, we are adding our own further testing of incoming ingredients. 

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction.

Pet parents with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian. In most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.

For further information, please contact Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. at 1-800-445-5777 Monday-Friday during the hours of 9am-5pm (CST) or at contactus@hillspet.com.  Information can also be found at www.hillspet.com/productlist

This voluntary recall only impacts canned dog food and primarily in the United States. It is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  Impacted products outside of the United States will be subject to separate notices on the country-specific website.  If you are outside of the United States, please check your own country’s Hill’s website for more information.
