Fromm Family Foods is recalling about 5,500 cases of Fromm Shredded dog food, which is a relatively small recall considering the food was distributed nationwide. The recall was issued due to elevated levels of vitamin D. The notice, shared by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), says that elevated vitamin D levels can have negative impacts on dogs of all sizes. The company discovered the problem during internal testing.
"Dogs ingesting elevated levels of vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss," the notice states. "Vitamin D when consumed at very high levels can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction." It is especially concerning considering most dogs have a fairly homogenous diet.
Here are the specific products under recall. All of the products were sold in 12-ounce cans with a best-by date of 08/2024.
No illnesses have yet been linked with the food. Nonetheless, you shouldn't feed this food to your pets. You can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
