The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that Stratford Care USA, Inc of Odessa, Florida is recalling multiple brands of Omega-3 supplements for cats and dogs due to potentially elevated levels of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an essential nutrient for dogs; however, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to health issues depending on the level of Vitamin A and the length of exposure.
