More Dog Food Recalled Due to Aflatoxins

Three more labels of dry dog food from another manufacturer have been added to the recall list because of levels of aflatoxins above acceptable limits.

Advanced Animal Nutrition, which said it had no reports of adverse health effects related to the dog food, become the third company with the problem, recalling:

– Dog Power Adult Maintenance Formula 21-12, 50 lb. bags

– Dog Power Hunters Formula 27-14 Dog Food, 50 lb. bags

– Dog Power Hi-Pro Performance Formula 26-18 Dog Food, 50 lb. bags

The recall is for lot numbers 4K10004 through 4K1322. Advanced Animal Nutrition said the recalled dog food was distributed in Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. 

Like Iams and Cargill, at issue for Advanced Animal Nutrition are levels of fungus or mold growth, often associated with corn, that at high levels can cause liver damage. If dogs that ate the recalled dry food show symptoms of sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish eyes or gums, or diarrhea, they should be taken to a veterinarian, the recall notice advised. 

Consumers returning either opened and unopened packages will be given full refunds, the company said. For more information contact the company at 866-648-7646.
