The definitive list of dry dog foods recalled as a result of potential vitamin D contamination.
In early December, the FDA announced an expanded list of dog food products being recalled due to elevated levels of vitamin D. Since then, investigation has revealed additional contaminated products and prompted more recalls.
Although vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, too much of it can cause serious health problems. Signs of excessive vitamin D intake include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. At toxic levels, vitamin D can cause kidney failure or death.
The FDA is encouraging pet owners to discontinue feeding the recalled products to their dogs. Concerned pet owners whose dog has been consuming one of the recalled products or is displaying any signs of toxicity should contact their pet’s veterinarian.
All of the recalled products are dry dog foods, and all share a common contract manufacturer. The FDA considers this an ongoing investigation and additional recalls may be announced. In the meantime, the complete list of companies and recalled products is as follows:
