Dog Food Recall

FDA Alerts Pet Owners Expanded Recall Toxic Hill’s Pet Food

FDA Alerts Pet Owners and Veterinarians About Potentially Toxic Levels of Vitamin D in 33 Varieties of Hill’s Canned Dog Food in Expanded Recall

Expanded recall of 86 total lots of 33 varieties (SKUs) of canned dog foods manufactured by Hill’s Pet Nutrition after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity. Hill’s Pet Nutrition initiated this recall in late January 2019, however, as of March 20, 2019, the firm expanded the scope of the recall to include additional products and product lots. In May 2019 the firm expanded the recall to include an additional product lot code for a variety of canned food in the recall.

Excessive D vitamin toxicity

Testing leading up to the January recall and the March and May recall expansions 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. At this time, the only pet products that have been recalled are Hill’s Pet Nutrition canned food made for dogs. 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.

What Brands Have Been Recalled?
