FDA announces 2nd Vitamin D dog food recall in ten days

The FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine announced the second Vitamin D dog food recall this month on Monday, Oct. 11. Tuffy’s Pet Foods is ‘voluntarily’ recalling “approximately 1,600 cases of Pure Vita Salmon Entree Dog Food in a Tetrapak carton following notification from the product manufacturer of potentially elevated levels of Vitamin D.”

The announcement asserts “no reports of illness or injury have been reported” to date.

TCR is following up to inquire about the identity of the error identified (FDA’s or Tuffy’s alliterations):

“The announcement also indicates that Tuffy’s was informed “by the product manufacturer that this product may contain elevated levels of vitamin D. The manufacturer of the affected product has identified and isolated the error and corrective actions are in progress to prevent this from happening again. There are no other Pure Vita products affected by this recall. This voluntary recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and is being made out of an abundance of caution.”
