A recall has been issued by Sunshine Mills, Inc. due to the possibility of high levels of Aflatoxin in brands of dog food.
According to the FDA, the recall includes three types of dog food.
- Family Pet Meaty Cuts: Beef, Chicken & Cheese Flavors
- Heartland Farms Grilled Favorites: Beef, Chicken & Cheese Flavor
- Paws Happy Life Butcher’s Choice Dog Food
The FDA says Aflatoxin is “a naturally occurring mold by-product from the growth ofAspergillus flavus and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.”
Any pets that have eaten the above brands should be taken to a veterinarian if they exhibit symptoms of illness like lethargy and a reluctance to eat, vomiting, diarrhea or if a yellowish tint in the eyes or gums appears.
The dog food products have been distributed across the nation. Retailers have been contacted and asked to remove the products from shelves and inventory.
Pet owners who purchased the dog food may return the unused portion to the store they bought it from and receive a full refund.
