Adapted from a press release:

Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company of Monroe, Washington, USA recalled approximately 51,000 packages of Simply Nourish frozen dog food that contained elevated levels of vitamin D, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

No illnesses have been reported to date. No other products have been affected.

The recall was initiated after a routine nutrition test confirmed elevated vitamin D levels on certain Simply Nourish frozen food products. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem arose as a result of the vitamin mix dosage being significantly reduced by the vitamin mix manufacturer, and this change was not detected or properly communicated. As a result, the dosage was not reduced. We care deeply about our customers and their pets, and have put corrective actions into place to ensure this issue does not reoccur.

Affected Simply Nourish frozen food products were distributed at select PetSmart stores nationwide.

Products are packaged in 2lb and 4.5lb packages across specific date ranges. A full list of affected products is below:
