Three Types of Dog Food Recalled due to High Levels of Mold Producing By-Product.
Three types of dry dog food have now been recalled by the FDA due to high levels of Aflatoxin-a mold producing by-product.
The FDA says Aflatoxin is “a naturally occurring mold by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.”
The recall was issued after a sampling of the product showed high levels of the mold producing by-product.
According to the FDA, the recall was issued on September 2, 2020 and includes three types of dog food.
- Family Pet Meaty Cuts: Beef, Chicken & Cheese Flavors
- Heartland Farms Grilled Favorites: Beef, Chicken & Cheese Flavor
- Paws Happy Life Butcher’s Choice Dog Food
The FDA says the recalled brands were sold nationwide. Retailers have been contacted and asked to remove the products from shelves and inventory.
If your dog has consumed any of the recalled products and is showing symptoms such as lethargy, reluctance to eat, vomiting, diarrhea or a yellowish tint in the eyes or gums, contact your veterinarian right away.
According to the FDA, no illnesses have been reported at this time.
Consumers should return their products to the place of purchase for a refund.
