Hillā€™s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling 25 varieties of canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration. Following the recall, numerous pet owners have told media outlets and stated on social media that their dogsā€™ deaths were connected to recalled Hillā€™s Pet Nutrition canned dog food.

In the United States, the affected canned dog foods were distributed through retail pet stores and veterinary clinics nationwide.  No dry foods, cat foods or treats are affected.

Hillā€™s Pet Nutrition learned of the potential for elevated vitamin D levels in canned dog foods after receiving a complaint in the United States about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels.  An investigation confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D due to a supplier error. 

Hillā€™s has identified and isolated the error and Hillā€™s has required its supplier to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients. Hillā€™s is adding its own further testing of incoming ingredients. 

This voluntary recall only affects canned dog food and primarily in the United States. It is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  Impacted products outside of the United States will be subject to separate notices on the country-specific website.  If you are outside of the United States, please check your own countryā€™s Hillā€™s website for more information.

Dogs ingesting elevated levels of vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction.
