FDA Warns Dog Owners Over Dry Pet Food Recall
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting pet owners of a dry dog food recall. Testing found that samples of the dog food contained excessive, potentially toxic amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death.
According to the FDA, recalls have been initiated for impacted food from Nutrisca, Natural Life Pet Products, Sunshine Mills, Inc., Kroger brand, and ELM dog foods. All of the foods were distributed nationwide.
The FDA says that this is a developing situation and this list may not be complete.
The recall was initiated after some of the manufacturers received complaints from pet owners about dogs with vitamin D toxicity.
