My cats ate food from recall - how long do symptoms take?

I'm not sure what to do, my boys ate a bag of Applaws from the recall list about 3 months ago. I just received an email from Amazon.
Would they have presented with symptoms by now?
They are at the vets on Thursday for their booster vaccine so I will mention it then, but I'm panicking in the meantime.

I would ring the vets before Thursday because if they want to do a blood test they’ll need more clinic time.

I hope their ok.

Thank you for your reply!
I just spoke to my vet and he wasn't concerned as he said that most of the cats who are passing away are cats who are eating the food as their regular diet. Apparently, it's an accumulative effect.
My boys only had one bag a month and a half ago.

He said on Thurs he will be checking their gums and other things then decide whether blood tests are necessary.
He seemed to think that something would have happened by now if it were going to.

I think ill be worried for a while though.

As is traditional the cat will be ok, the owner will be in bits 😺 good luck for Thursday.

We got Cols bag 19th March and he died 14th May. It was his only food ( well apart from some raw meat)
