If you have this food at home, do not feed it to your pets. Throw it out promptly or return it to the store for a refund.

Some of the recalled foods contained as much as 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D, according to FDA scientists.

“Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss,” the FDA reports. “Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death.”
