The following recall announcement was updated on FDA’s site on December 6 and confirmed by Pet Age with all mentioned brands:
The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about recalls of several dry dog foods after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity. Testing found that samples of the affected foods contained as much as 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D. Very high levels of vitamin D can cause serious health problems in dogs, such as kidney failure or death. Veterinarians should be aware that vitamin D toxicity may present as hypercalcemia, similar to dogs that have consumed a rodent killer.
At this time, the only pet products that are affected by this recall are foods made for dogs. Pet owners should discontinue feeding these recalled products.
