What could have caused my cat's sudden lack of appetite?

We've been feeding our cat Wellness Complete Health - Salmon, Salmon Meal and Deboned Turkey (dry food) for about 2 months now. She usually eats very enthusiastically for a few minutes just after feeding then leaves it and comes back to finish it later on.
Literally overnight this has changed. She no longer will eat the Wellness food. She is still acting the same though - running around and playing but she won't eat the food. She does, however perk up when we start to get her food and follow us to the kitchen, but when presented the food, she sniffs at it then leaves the room. She will eat wet food, but not with the same enthusiasm as wet food usually gets from her. She's still drinking water with no problem.
She's vomited twice since this started (2 days ago) but only water. She's a year and a couple months old if that can make a difference.
The Wellness food we bought her says it expires in May 2008 but we've been feeding her from the same (large) bag for the 2 months.
Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
