Hill's recall - toxic levels of Vit D

FDA Alerts Pet Owners and Veterinarians About Potentially Toxic Levels of Vitamin D in 33 Varieties of Hillís Canned Dog Food in Expanded Recall

Fast Facts

The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about the expanded recall of 85 total lots of 33 varieties (SKUs) of canned dog foods manufactured by Hillís Pet Nutrition after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity.

Hillís Pet Nutrition initiated this recall in late January 2019, however, as of March 20, 2019, the firm expanded the scope of the recall to include additional products and product lots.

The recall was expanded after the FDA requested that Hillís test samples of foods it had produced that were not part of the original recall. Hillís conducted that testing, which led to the expanded recall on March 20, 2019.

Testing leading up to the January recall and the March recall expansion found that samples of the dog food contained excessive, potentially toxic amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death.

At this time, the only pet products that have been recalled are Hillís Pet Nutrition canned food made for dogs.

Pet owners should discontinue feeding their pets these recalled products.

The FDA is asking veterinarians who suspect vitamin D toxicity in their patients to report them through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. Pet owners can also report suspect cases to the FDA.

Yeah This has been an ongoing recall for about 2 months I think. A lot of the time you get these recalls picked up by some news outlet and they post it as a new story but it's just old. It's good to get it posted again and again but they should make sure they are posting that the recall has been from whatever date and not something new to scare people all over again.

I know. I didn't see that it had been posted at all.

Oh I agree it would be posted for people to know about. Just didn't want people thinking it's another one. It's just the same one from before.
