Eight dog food brands have just been recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with one brand being sold across Canada. The recalled kibble has been tested and confirmed to contain as much as 70 times the appropriate level of vitamin D. If too much of this vitamin is ingested, your dog could experience dangerous symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination, kidney failure, weight loss and, in the worst cases, even death.
In Canada, Sunshine Mills Inc. sells kibble products to Canadians. The recalled dog food is:
