Dog Food Recall Issued

Dog Food Recall


A recall was issued for a dog food product on Thursday due to elevated levels of vitamin D in the food, the third such recall issued by the Food and Drug Administration this week.

Thursday’s recall specifically affected Elm Pet Foods, and their chicken and chickpea recipe dog foods.

Earlier recalls this week have been issued for dry dog food varieties from ANF Pet and fromSunshine Mills, under their Evolve, Sportsman’s Pride and Triumph brands.

All have been recalled for elevated levels of vitamin D, which according to the FDA can cause “vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss.”

Very high levels, according to the agency, can lead to serious health issues.

The FDA has not said if the recalls are linked, through a shared product distributor or some other kind of connection.

“Consumers who have purchased any of the products affected by this recall should dispose of it or return it to the retailer for a full refund,” the FDA says.
