FDA Warning

Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death. Pet owners whose dogs have been eating the recalled brands and are showing these symptoms should contact their veterinarians.

What Pet Owners and Retailers Should Do

If your dog's food is one of the above listed as affected do not feed it to them. Pet owners are advised to discard of food and call your vet if symptoms such as weight loss, vomiting, kidney failure, and death occur in your pet. Don’t sell the recalled foods. Contact the manufacturer for further instructions. "The FDA also encourages retailers to contact consumers who have purchased recalled products, if they have the means to do so (such as through shopper’s card records or point-of-sale signs)."

Retailers are also advised to take the products off the shelves. If your dog has been affected please report food related illness to the FDA's reporting portal here or call the Consumer Complaint Coordinators at 855-630-2112 (toll free).

What is the FDA Doing about the Affected?

FDA scientists are still analyzing reports and the information currently available to determine whether the illnesses are definitively connected to diet. FDA scientists have evaluated samples of some of these products, and State and private lab test results indicate that the food contained as much as approximately 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D. Consuming food with such high levels of vitamin D is potentially toxic to dogs and in severe cases may lead to kidney failure and/or death.

At this time, the only pet products that have been impacted are food made for dogs.

This is a developing situation and additional recalls may be announced. For an updated list of recalled pet foods visit the FDA's website here.
