Popular dog food brand recalled for elevated​ Vitamin D

Hill’s Pet Nutrition announced Wednesday is it expanding its recall of canned dog food stating their dog food may have elevated levels of vitamin D, which could make your pet sick.

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can cause serious health problems for pets, including vomiting, weight loss, kidney failure, and death. FDA scientists found some of the recalled foods contained as much as 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D.

The company issued a voluntary recall of 25 varieties of Hill’s Prescription Diet and Hill’s Science Diet canned foods on January 30 due to the same concern. They are now saying eight more products have been affected by the same vitamin premix that was the source of the original recall.

In a press release, the company stated:

“Following that recall [in January], we conducted a detailed review of all canned dog foods potentially impacted by the vitamin premix with elevated levels of vitamin D. This review included: analyzing consumer complaints; reviewing veterinarian medical consultations; auditing our supplier; and reviewing our own manufacturing and quality procedures. We then did additional product testing to ensure we had taken all appropriate action. Our review determined that there were additional products affected by that vitamin premix, and it is for that reason that we are expanding the recall. Hill’s has received a limited number of complaints of pet illness related to some of these products.”

The FDA urges customers with dogs who have consumed any of the recalled products or is showing any of these signs to contact their veterinarian immediately.

Customers who purchased the product with the specific lot/date codes listed should discontinue feeding and dispose of those products immediately or return the unopened product to your retailer for a refund or exchange.

For more information, please contact Hill’s via their website or at 1-800-445-5777.
