Fast Facts About Recent Vitamin D Recall

The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals nationwide about the voluntary recall. Testing found that samples of the dog food contained excessive, potentially toxic amounts of vitamin D.

Vitamin D although an essential nutrient for dogs can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death in very high amounts. At this time, the only pet products that have been impacted are food made for dogs. Pet owners should discontinue feeding these recalled products.

The FDA is asking veterinarians who suspect vitamin D toxicity in their patients to report them through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. Pet owners can also report suspect cases to the FDA.
