Hill’s Recalls Canned Dog Food For Excessive Vitamin D

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select types of their canned dog food for excessive vitamin D content. This issue can cause health problems in dogs, which can experience vomiting, weight loss, increased thirst and urination, and weight loss. When vitamin D is consumed at very high levels, it can lead to kidney problems in the animals, although most recover after the discontinuation of feeding.

The recall was initiated after a complaint was lodged in the U.S. about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels. The investigation confirmed the problem because of a supplier error. The company identified and isolated the error and have required the supplier to start additional quality testing before they release the ingredients. No dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.

The recall only affects canned dog food, sold primarily in the U.S. If you live outside the U.S., check your own country’s NHIll’s website for more information.

You can see the list of recalled products at the FDA website, along with the package size, SKU number, and lot code and date code details. The recalled products include specific lot codes of Hill’s Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Canine Chicken & Vegetable Stew in 12.5 ounce cans, Hill’s Prescription Diet i/d Canine Chicken & Vegetable Stew in 12.5 ounce cans, ¬†Hill’s Prescription Diet z/d Canine in 5.5 ounce cans, Hill’s Prescription Diet i/d Canine in 13 ounce cans, Hill’s Science Diet Adult Turkey & Barley Dog Food in 13 ounce cans, HIll’s Science Diet Adult Light with Liver Dog Food in 13 ounce cans, and Hill’s Science Diet Adult 7+ Healthy Cuisine Braised Beef, Carrots & Peas Stew dog food in 12.5 ounce cans, among others.

Look through the list at the FDA web site carefully. If you purchased any of these recalled products, don’t feed them to your dog. Throw them away or take them back to the store where you bought them for a refund.
