The following recall announcement was posted on the FDA’s site on November 2 and confirmed by Pet Age with Nutrisca:

Nutrisca, of Saint Louis, MO, is voluntarily recalling one formula of Nutrisca dry dog food because it contains elevated levels of vitamin D. Products were distributed nationwide to retail stores. The recalled product consists of Nutrisca Chicken and Chickpea Dry Dog Food 4 lbs (UPC: 8-84244-12495-7), 15 lbs (8-84244-12795-8) and 28 lbs (8-84244-12895-5) bags. Bags affected have a Best By Date code of February 25, 2020 through September 13, 2020.

Nutrisca became aware of the elevated levels of vitamin D after receiving complaints from three pet owners of vitamin D toxicity after consuming the product. An investigation revealed a formulation error led to the elevated vitamin D in the product.

Consumers should stop feeding the products listed above. Dogs ingesting elevated levels of Vitamin D 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. Consumers with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed above and are exhibiting these symptoms, should contact their veterinarian.

Consumers who have purchased any of the products affected by this recall should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Nutrisca at (888) 279-9420 from 8 AM to 5 PM Central Standard time, Monday through Friday, or by email at consumerservices@nutrisca.com for more information.

No other Nutrisca products, including Nutrisca Chicken & Chickpea wet dog foods are impacted. All other Nutrisca dog and cat food products are safe to feed to pets.
