There's yet another dog food recall that was shared by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). It's not even the first one to be announced in the last few weeks.

Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company announced a recall of 51,000 packages of Simply Nourish frozen dog food sold at select PetSmart locations nationwide. The issue is elevated levels of vitamin D. The notice, shared by the FDA, says that "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." Needless to say, you don't want to take the risk and feed this to your pup. 

Additionally, the recall states, consuming elevated levels of vitamin D "over a long period of time can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction." If your dog has eaten the recalled food and exhibits these symptoms, you should contact your vet.

Here's a look at the specific products that are part of the recall. All were sold in two-pound and four-and-a-half-pound packages. You can find more details about the products on the FDA website. 

  • Simply Nourish Frozen Chicken & Veggies
  • Simply Nourish Beef & Barley
  • Simply Nourish Turkey & Sweet Potato
  • Simply Nourish Pork & Veggies

You can return the packages to the place of purchase for a refund.
