October 5, 2021 — Fromm Family Foods, a pet food brand based in Wisconsin, voluntarily recalled over 5,000 cases of Fromm Four-Star Shredded Entrée Canned Dog Food due to potentially high vitamin D levels.
No reports of illness or injury have been reported thus far, but consumers should be aware that dogs of any size and age could be affected from consumption of these products.
According to the FDA, "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 can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction. Consumers who have dogs that have consumed any of the affected products and are exhibiting these symptoms should contact their veterinarian."
