FDA Warns About Dog Food Recall Due To Toxic Levels of Vitamin D

According to NBC, the Food and Drug Administration put out a warning on Monday that up to 11 different dog food brands contain high levels of vitamin D, which can be toxic for dogs. 

The FDA says that,

"Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can  cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death,”

Some symptoms of too much vitamin D include vomiting, increase urination, weight loss, loss of appetite, increased thirst and excessive drooling. 

Some of the affected brands being recalled include Nutrisca, Natural Life Pet Products, Sunshine Mills, ANF, Lidl, Kroger, Elm Pet Foods, and Ahold Delhaize. It is possible for more companies and brands may be named in the recall. A complete list of specific recalled food is available on the FDA Website.

The FDA advises that pet owners should stop feeding their pets the recalled food because all brands involved apparently purchase products from the same manufacturer. 

The FDA also says that any pets are showing symptoms mentioned above, and have been eating the recalled food should see a veterinarian. 

At this time no other animal products are involved, only dog foods.
