“Hill’s Pet Nutrition learned of the potential for elevated vitamin D levels in some of our canned dog foods after receiving a complaint in the United States about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels.  Our investigation confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D due to a supplier error,” the company said.

Pet owners who purchased any of the products listed below with the specific lot/date codes are warned to discontinue feeding them to their pets and either dispose of it or return the unopened product to the place of purchase for a refund.

The recall comes two months after multiple dog food brands were recalled over the same concern.

In November, Sunshine Mills issued a voluntary recall for three of its brands due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.
