Three bands of puppy and dog food products by Sunshine Mills has been recalled due to potentially high levels of vitamin D.
The high vitamin D levels could lead to serious health issues in dogs, including kidney failure.
Sunshine Mills and the US Food and Drug Administration stated the brands affected are Evolve, Sportsman's Pride and Triumph.
"Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction," the company stated. Dogs may exhibit vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss.
Evolve Chicken & Rice Puppy Dry Dog Food, Sportsman's Pride Large Breed Puppy Dry Dog Food and Triumph Chicken & Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food with a "Best Buy Date Code of November 1, 2018, through November 8, 2019" are affected and should not be fed to pets. Dogs who have eaten them and exhibit any of the symptoms should be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible, the company said.
Consumers who have bought the recalled products can return them to the seller for a refund.
