Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. is voluntarily expanding its Dec 30, 2020 recall of pet food products to include all pet food products made with corn, due to the corn being contaminated with unacceptably high levels of aflatoxin.
The affected products were distributed under different brand names nationwide via stores and online. The recalled products include all that expire on or before July 9, 2022 (07/09/22).
Aflatoxin is a mold by-product that results from the growth of Aspergillus flavus and can be harmful to dogs if consumed in excess. Symptoms of aflatoxin poisoning may include lethargy, reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to gums or eyes, and diarrhea.
