According to the United Stated Food and Drug Administration, the dog food is being recalled due to elevated levels of Vitamin D. The affected Simply Nourish frozen food products were distributed at select PetSmart stores nationwide.

Although no illnesses have been reported, consumers that purchased any of the products should stop feeding it to their pet immediately.

Dogs who ingest elevated levels of Vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. When dogs consume Vitamin D in large amounts or over a long period of time it can cause serious health issues including renal dysfunction. Owners who have dogs that consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting symptoms should contact their veterinarian.

Consumers who have purchased Simply Nourish Frozen Food are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
