Hill’s Expands Recall of Canned Dog Food Again For Elevated Vitamin D

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is expanding its recall of canned dog food for elevated vitamin C. A single can date/lot code within an already recalled case of dog food was inadvertently omitted from their list. This is the same vitamin premix that triggered the January 31, 2019 recall.

These newly recalled cans were in cases marked with the previously recalled lot code. Most of this product was distributed in October and November 2018 and will most likely not be available.  No calls reporting ill pets for this particular SKU date code/lot code have been received by the Hill’s Consumer Affairs and Veterinary Consultation Services.

The recalled product is Hill’s Prescription Diet i/d Digestive Care Chicken & Vegetable Stew Canned Dog Food in 12.5 ounce cans. The SKU number is 3389 and the Date Code/Lot Code is 102020T21.

The original recall was issued on January 31, 2019. There were complaints about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels. Those symptoms include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. When vitamin D is consumed by dogs at very high levels, the animals an experience serious health issues including renal (kidney) dysfunction.

The first recall expansion was announced on March 20, 2019. It included many more products. And the notice stated that “Hill’s has received a limited number of complaints of pet illness related to some of these products.”

If you purchased any of the canned dog foods listed in any of these recalls, do not feed them to your pet. Discard them in a sealed garbage can, or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.
