Pet Food Recalls

Unfortunately, pet food recalls are a regular fact of life these days. From mold and bacteria (like Salmonella), to toxic substances and actual objects in the food (like metal pieces), the list of contaminants is nearly endless. And while some may just cause an upset stomach, others may be life threatening!

 

There are three good web sites for current pet food recall information (as well as our list below): The FDA Recalls and Withdrawals site and Pet Food Industry.com, and Dogfoodadvisor.com (and all three allow you to sign up for recall alerts).

 

Find current dog food recall and cat food recall and withdrawal information posted from the FDA and petfoodindustry.com are below (the petfoodindustry.com list is an addition to the FDA list). We will try to keep this page updated regularly, but please let us know if you hear of anything not listed!

Dangerous Levels of Vitamin D Discovered in Several Dog Food Brands

 
CAUTION — ONGOING SITUATION
Last Updated December 7, 2018

December 7, 2018 — The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about recalls of several dry dog foods after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity.

Testing found that samples of the affected foods contained as much as 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D.

Very high levels of vitamin D can cause serious health problems in dogs like kidney failure or death.

Veterinarians should be aware that vitamin D toxicity may present as hypercalcemia, similar to dogs that have consumed a rodent killer.

At this time, the only pet products that are affected by this recall are foods made for dogs.

About Vitamin D Toxicity

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 Caused the Recalls?

The FDA has become aware of reports of vitamin D toxicity in dogs that ate dry dog food produced by the same manufacturer and marketed under several different brand names.

The FDA is working with the manufacturer to provide a comprehensive list of affected brands.

Important Warning

This is a developing situation. Additional recalls may be announced.

The Dog Food Advisor will update this page as the FDA makes further information available.

What Brands Are Recalled?

This is a developing situation and this list may not be complete.
