1; Hill's Pet Nutrition has made a voluntary recall of 44 varieties of Hill's Prescription Diet and Hill's Science Diet from Canned Diet for Potentially Toxic Vitamin D Levels.

The original recall took place on January 31. It was found that vitamin premix from a US supplier added to the food contained elevated vitamin D levels. After further product testing, the company expanded this recall on Wednesday to include more items, a total of 85 lots and 44 varieties of canned food. According to a US Food and Drug Administration notice.

The affected cans were distributed to pet supplies and veterinary clinics in the United States.

Hill's Science Diet and Hill's Prescription Diet are being promoted at Petsmart in St. George and Hill's Science Diet at Petco in Washington City. Representatives of both stores told St. George News that they had recently been notified of the recall and would remove the affected products from their shelves as soon as possible.

No dry dog ​​food, cat food or treats were affected.

Products marked with any of the affected lot codes should not be fed to pets and should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Hill's Pet Nutrition was first warned that the product contained an excess of vitamin D after several complaints about dogs becoming ill after eating the food.

While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, consuming too much of it can lead to various health problems, depending on the amount and duration of exposure. Dogs that have taken too much vitamin D may experience symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drinking, and weight loss.

Vitamin D can occasionally lead to life-threatening health problems such as kidney failure when consumed at high levels.

Dogs that have consumed the affected product and suffer from symptoms of excessive vitamin D should be referred to a veterinarian

In most cases, when the animal no longer eats the product, it is expected to fully recovered, the announcement said.

"As a company and as a pet parent ourselves, we deeply regret the concern that this recall and the subsequent expansion have led to pet parents and all the possible implications that the recalled food could have on pets," said Hill's Pet Nutrition in the announcement. "We are committed to meeting the standards of animal care that parents and veterinarians expect us to regain their trust."
