Headlines FDA Warns of Potentially Toxic Levels of Vitamin D in Pet Foods Multiple products have been recalled. Published 2 years ago on December 4, 2018 By PETS+ Staff Share Tweet The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it is investigating the presence of potentially toxic levels of vitamin D in several dog foods. The dry dog foods were recalled following complaints that dogs eating them experienced vitamin D toxicity, the FDA said in a press release. Testing 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, the FDA notes. The recalled foods were from Nutrisca, Natural Life Pet Products, Sunshine Mills, ANF, Lidl (Orlando brand), Kroger, ELM Pet Foods and Ahold Delhaize. A full list of recalled products is available here. The recalled products were sold nationwide. The agency added: “This is a developing situation and additional recalls may be announced.” Advertisement It further explained: “After receiving complaints from pet owners about dogs with vitamin D toxicity, one of the firms reported to the FDA that it was recalling dry pet food due to potentially toxic levels of vitamin D. Many other brands with a common contract manufacturer have also been recalled. The FDA is working with the contract manufacturer to provide a comprehensive list of affected brands.” Related Topics:Latest News Toprecall click to Comment(Comment) Advertisement You may like Andis Adds 2 International Pet Groomers to Global Education Team Yelp to Flag Businesses Accused of Racism With ‘Consumer Alerts’ PetSmart Charities Commits $2.1M to Programs Serving At-Risk Pet Parents Promoted Headlines Category Spotlight: Terry Naturally Animal Health Category Spotlight: eTailPet Are You Ready For Adventures Beyond The Backyard?
