Nutrisca and Natural Life Dog Foods Recalled for Elevated Vitamin D

Two dog foods, Nutrisca and Natural Life, are recalling one flavor of dry dog food because it has elevated vitamin D levels. Dogs can experience symptoms including vomiting, increased urination, loss of appetite, and weight loss. When vitamin D is consumed at very high levels, it can cause kidney issues in dogs. Consumer complaints of vitamin D toxicity in their pets prompted the recall. A formulation error led to the elevated vitamin D in the product.

Nutrisca is recalling three sizes of Nutrisca Chicken and Chickpea Dry Dog Food. The 4 pound bag has a UPC number 8-84244-12495-7; the 15 pound bag has UPC number 8-84244-12795-8, and the 28 pound bag has UPC number 8-84244-12895-5. The bags have a Best By Date code of February 25, 2020 through September 13, 2020. Those codes are on the back of bottom of each bag. The products were distributed stores retail stores nationwide.

Natural Life is recalling 17.5 pound bags of Natural Life Chicken & Potato Dry Dog Food, with UPC number 0-12344-08175-1. The bag has a Best By Date code of May 29, 2020 through August 10, 2020. The products were distributed to retail stores in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and California.

Consumers should stop feeding this dog food to their pets. If your dog has eaten either of these types of pet food and has been ill with the symptoms of vitamin D toxicity, take them to the vet.

You can either throw the product away, in a wrapped package in a secure garbage can so other animals can’t access it, or you can take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.
