Dog Food Recall – Updated February 2, 2012

Here is an e-mail I was sent by signing up for their alerts here.  These brands were recalled earlier, but this is an update to the recall:

According to the Associated Press, Advanced Animal Nutrition of Thayer, Missouri has today announced a voluntary dog food recall involving three of its products due to contamination with aflatoxin.

The event was initially announced by the FDA on December 8, 2011 and later updated by a second news bulletin dated December 13, 2011 (republished February 2, 2012).

The recall includes the 50-pound bags of the following products:

  • Dog Power Hunters Formula 27-14
  • Dog Power Adult Maintenance Formula 21-12
  • Dog Power Hi-Pro Performance Formula 26-18

The contaminated products were apparently distributed in Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by a certain species of mold commonly found in cereal grains.

The affected products originally included Lot Codes K0004 through K1322. However, the updated bulletin now includes Lot Codes 4K1004 through 4K1322.

What to Watch For

According to the above FDA news release…

“Pets that have consumed any of the above recalled products and exhibit symptoms of illness including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, or diarrhea should be seen by a veterinarian.”

What to Do

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

Or go to http://www.fda.gov/petfoodcomplaints.

Advanced Animal Nutrition has suggested consumers return the recalled dog food to the store where it was bought for a full refund.
