PERHAM, MINN. — Tuffy’s Pet Foods announced a voluntary recall Oct. 11 involving 1,600 cases of its Pure Vita Salmon Entrée Dog Food sold under its NutriSource brand. The diets were packaged in Tetra Pak cartons and contain potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.
Tuffy’s stated no illnesses have yet been reported by consumers and “is acting out of an abundance of caution” by removing affected lots from distribution.
The product was sold in 12.5-oz cartons with best-by dates of June 29, 2023, and Sept. 1, 2023. They were distributed to retailers and distributors across the United States. Affected lot numbers are 0629101N1 and 0901101N1.
Tuffy’s stated it was notified by its co-manufacturer that the products could contain elevated levels of vitamin D. The error has been isolated and corrective actions have been taken to prevent the recall from affecting other products in the future. No other Pure Vita products are affected by the recall, the company stated.
The pet food company is working with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to disseminate information about the recall.
