FDA Dog Food Recall Alert Toxic Levels of Vitamin D in Dry Foods

FDA RECALL ALERTAfter consumer complaints, FDA Testing found samples of the dog food contained excessive, and toxic amounts of vitamin D. This Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but at very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death to your pet. An FDA Dog Food Recall Alert was issued as follows:

Confirm that you are not feeding one of the recalled products and stop feeding it immediately. The FDA noted that this is a developing situation and that there may be additional recalls.  The FDA reported that 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.

The FDA is asking veterinarians who suspect vitamin D toxicity in their patients to report them through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. Pet owners can also report suspect cases to the FDA.

These are the Symptoms of 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.
