Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Pet food company Nutrisca on Wednesday announced a recall of its dry dog food, due to elevated Vitamin D levels.
The voluntary recall affects Nutrisca Chicken and Chickpea Dry Dog Food, sold in retail stores in four, 15 and 28-pound bags.
The St. Louis-based company said an error in formulation of the product was discovered after complaints from three people, whose pets showed signs of Vitamin D toxicity.
"Dogs ingesting elevated levels of Vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss," the Food and Drug administration advised in a recall notice. "Vitamin D when consumed at very high levels can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction."
The FDA advised owners to dispose of or return the food.
Nutrisca said none of its other products are affected by the recall. Owners can contact Nutrisca at (888) 279-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
