FDA: Fromm Recalls Four Star Canned Dog Food Due to Vitamin D Levels


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that Fromm Family Foods is issuing a voluntary recall of approximately 5,500 cases of Fromm Shredded can Entrée dog food due to potentially elevated levels of Vitamin D. The report was verified with a representative of Fromm. The brand has posted an announcement regarding the voluntary recall on its website.

No reports of illness or injury have been reported from consumers to date, however Fromm management has determined it is prudent to pull these four lots out of distribution.

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 who have dogs that have consumed any of the affected products and are exhibiting these symptoms should contact their veterinarian.

Consumers should stop feeding the products listed below to their dogs. Affected recalled products were distributed at neighborhood pet stores nationwide. Products are packaged in 12-ounce cans with Best By Date 08/2024. A full list of affected products is below:

There are no other Fromm products affected by this recall. The recall was initiated after we discovered, through Fromm’s own analysis, that these products may contain elevated levels of Vitamin D.  Fromm states it has identified and isolated the error, and in addition to its existing safety process, the brand has put corrective actions into place to prevent this from happening again.

This voluntary recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
