ST. LOUIS — Natural Life Pet Products and Nutrisca, both of St. Louis, have voluntarily recalled dry dog food products due to elevated levels of vitamin D. Natural Life’s chicken and potato recipe in 17.5-lb. bags and Nutrisca’s chicken and chickpea recipe in 4-, 15- and 28-lb. bags were voluntarily recalled after three pet owners complained of vitamin D toxicity, which spurred an investigation that revealed a formulation error caused the elevated vitamin D levels.
Natural Life’s chicken and potato dry dog food with expiration dates between May 29 and Aug. 10, 2020, were identified to contain unsafe levels of vitamin D. Additionally, the three sizes of Nutrisca’s chicken and chickpea dry dog food with expiration dates between Feb. 25 and Sept. 13, 2020 were found to be unsafe. Recalled Natural Life products were distributed to retail stores in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and California. Recalled Nutrisca products were distributed nationwide.
The FDA urges consumers who have purchased these products to check expiration dates and either dispose of or return contaminated dog food to the place of purchase for a full refund.
