Manufacturer behind latest dog food recall for toxic levels of Vitamin D “identified and isolated the error” but declines our requests to identify “the error,” elaborate on “corrective actions”
On October 1, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that Wisconsin-based Fromm Family Foods had issued a “voluntary recall” of 5,500 cases of canned dog food. The announcement noted that the “affected recalled products” had already been delivered to “neighborhood pet stores” around the country; in other words, no, Fromm did not apparently identify any issue until the food was long gone.
“The recall was initiated after we discovered, through our own analysis, that these products may contain elevated levels of Vitamin D,” the announcement stated. “We have identified and isolated the error, and in addition to our existing safety process, we have put corrective actions into place to prevent this from happening again.”
Fromm spokesperson Lauren Grimm confirmed on October 6 that the company had still not received any reports of illness connected to the recall, as had been stated in its Oct. 1 press release. However, Grimm has so far declined to identify the error.
