Sunshine Mills Recalls Pet Food Products for Possible Elevated Levels of Aflatoxin


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that Sunshine Mills, Inc. is issuing a voluntary recall of certain products due to potentially elevated levels of Aflatoxin above the acceptable limit. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.

Pet Age has confirmed the voluntary recall with a representative from Sunshine Mills. This is a voluntary recall being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

No illnesses have been reported in association with these products to date, and no other Sunshine Mills, Inc. pet food products are affected by this announcement.

Pets that have consumed any of the recalled products and exhibit symptoms of illness including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, or diarrhea should be seen by a veterinarian.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should discontinue use of the product and may return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund.
