The emergence of dog food recalls has grown much too familiar in recent months. For example, Fromm Family Foods issued a dog food recall earlier this month owing to high amounts of vitamin D, which may be harmful to dogs.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall notice from Tuffy’s Pet Foods for the same issue on October 12. The business is recalling around 1,600 containers of Pure Vita Salmon Entrée Dog Food. The product maker informed them of the “possibly high” vitamin D levels according to the notification.
The product is packaged in a Tetrapack carton with the UPC “0 73893 96202 1.” It was sold throughout the United States, although just one product was available.
Look for the Pure Vita Salmon Entrée Dog Food with the lot code “0629101N1” and a best-by date of “June 29, 2023” or the Pure Vita Salmon Entrée Dog Food with the lot code “0901101N1” and a best-by date of “September 1, 2023.”
Tuffy’s Pet Foods has only had two batches of dog food recalled.
According to the recall, high vitamin D levels can induce sickness, lack of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. It may also cause renal impairment. Fortunately, the business claims that there have been no instances of sickness linked to its dog food.
Tuffy’s recommends that dog owners cease giving the recalled food to their pets “immediately.” If your dog exhibits any symptoms, you should notify your veterinarian and provide information on the recall. The items can be returned for a full refund at the place of purchase.
