RECALL ALERT: Purina Expands Recall Of Dry Dog Food


More of Nestlé Purina’s dry dog food is being recalled due to a supplier potentially adding excessive amounts of vitamin D to the food beyond the recommended limit.

The recall specifically applies to Purina’s Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental dog food in eight-pound and 20-pound bags, which are prescribed by veterinarians.

Purina advises anyone who has purchased the product to discard it immediately and request a refund. The food should be thoroughly destroyed to prevent wildlife from consuming it.

Although vitamin D is essential in a dog’s diet, excessive amounts can cause various health issues such as vomiting, loss of appetite, kidney dysfunction, and increased thirst and urination.

According to Purina, two pet owners reported that their dogs had high levels of vitamin D after consuming the recalled food. However, the dogs recovered after discontinuing the food.

Purina confirms that no other pet food labels are affected by the recall. The UPC codes for the recalled product are 38100 19190 and 38100 19192.

Purina sold the prescription dog food through veterinary clinics and online nationwide. Customers with inquiries should call 1-800-345-5678 or visit Purina’s website.
