Company Announcement Date: 13/08/2021
Product Type: Frozen Dog Food
Reason for Announcement: Elevated levels of Vitamin D
Company Name: Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company
Brand Name: Simply Nourish

Reason for Recall

 

Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company of Monroe, Washington is recalling approximately 51,000 packages of Simply Nourish frozen dog food, due to it containing elevated levels of Vitamin D. The recall was initiated after a routine nutrition test confirmed elevated Vitamin D levels on certain Simply Nourish frozen food products. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem arose as a result of the vitamin mix dosage being significantly reduced by the vitamin mix manufacturer, and this change was not detected or properly communicated. As a result, the dosage was not reduced. We care deeply about our customers and their pets, and have put corrective actions into place to ensure this issue does not reoccur. This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

 

Vitamin D Toxicity Information

 

Dogs ingesting elevated levels of Vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D when consumed at very high levels or over a long period of time can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction.
