The following statement was issued via email to all Family Pet Animal Hospital clients with dogs on 3/21/19.
We have been notified that Hill’s Pet Nutrition has expanded its voluntary recall (original recall on January 31, 2019) of specific lots of canned dog food for excessive levels of Vitamin D.
None of the affected products on the expanded recall list were ever sold to Family Pet Animal Hospital by Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Therefore we never sold any of these products directly to you. As we did previously, because this is a manufacturer’s recall and you may have purchased affected product from another retailer, in an abundance of caution, we are sending this notice to all of our dog pet parents.
According to Hill’s Pet Nutrition, a detailed review of their canned dog foods confirmed that the issue is isolated to the same vitamin premix used in canned dogs foods and limited to specific production lots. However, the review did determine there were additional products affected by that vitamin premix, which led to this expanded recall. No dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.
