Dog Food is being recalled for a third time in less than two months. First it was Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. and their SPORTMiX dog foods which contained high levels of aflatoxin. Then, Fromm Family Foods recalled thousands of cases of its Shredded Entrée canned dog food due to elevated levels of Vitamin D.
Now Tuffy’s Pet Foods, Inc. has issued a recall on their Pure Vita Salmon Entrée Dog Food in a Tetrapak carton again because of elevated vitamin D levels.
Pups who eat high levels of vitamin D can suffer from serious health issues. The symptoms of elevated vitamin D levels in dogs include "vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss,” a notice put out by the FDA read.
There have been no reports of injury or sickness but Tuffy’s issued the recall out of “abundance of caution.”
