Voluntary Dog Food Recall For Excessive Vitamin D Expands To Canned Food

Hill's Pet Nutrition voluntarily recalls select canned dog food

The company urges customers whose dogs exhibit such symptoms to call their veterinarian.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Hill's Pet Nutrition was recalling multiple lots of both its Prescription Diet and Science Diet dog foods. Symptoms include vomiting, weakness, loss of appetite, increased thirst & urination, seizures, abdominal pain, and sudden weight loss.

Hill's Pet Nutrition has issued a recall for some of its canned dog food. In most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.

The affected dog food was distributed to pet stores and veterinary clinics nationwide. The FDA said no dry foods, cat foods or treats were affected. According to the FDA, the danger in being exposed to high levels of vitamin D depends on the length of exposure. They should dispose of the product or return unopened cans to the place of purchase for a refund.

Further investigation showed that a supplier error caused the high level of vitamin D in the food.

Hill's noted that it had identified and isolated the error and, to prevent the problem from happening again, had required their supplier "to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients". Illnesses related to the recalled food can be reported through the FDA's Safety Reporting Portal or by calling appropriate state's FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators.
