Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Several brands of dry dog food are being recalled after FDA scientists found elevated levels of Vitamin D, which can cause serious health problems in dogs.
The recall effects Ahold Delhaize, ELM Pet Foods, Kroger, Lidl (Orlando brand), ANF, Sunshine Mills and Natural Life Pet Products. That's in addition to the Nutrisca recall last month for the same reason.
The recalled foods were found to have as much as 70 times the intended amount of Vitamin D, which can be toxic at that level. Symptoms to look out for include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased urination, increased thirst, drooling and weight loss. At toxic levels, Vitamin D can cause kidney failure and death.
Pet owners are encouraged to discard any recalled dog food immediately or return it to the store.
Here's a list of the affected dog foods:
