Cause: Potentially elevated levels of thyroid hormone
Announcement: FDA recall notice dated March. 25, 2020
What was recalled: 13oz. cans of 95% premium beef dog food
Dave’s Pet Food is voluntarily recalling a single lot of its 95% premium beef cans due to the products potentially containing high levels of thyroid hormone. The affected product was sold in pet stores and online retailers along the east coast of the US.
The affected product is a single batch of 548 cases of 13 oz. 95% premium beef dog food with a UPC # of 85038-11167 and a date code of 08/2020. The recall was initiated after the FDA detected elevated levels of thyroid hormone during testing after a consumer complaint.
Consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone can cause dogs to experience increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate, and restlessness. Prolonged exposure may lead to more serious illness.
