(CBS NEWS) – Hill’s Pet Nutrition is expanding on its nationwide recall of canned dog food with potentially toxic levels of vitamin D. It took the action after saying it had received “a limited number of complaints of pet illnesses“ related to additional products.
The expansion is the result of the same vitamin premix received from a U.S. supplier that caused its prior recall at the end of January, said Hill’s, a unit of Colgate-Palmolive.
The products now being added to the recall included eight types of Science Diet and Prescription Diet canned food, as well as more units of the products recalled earlier. Here’s the complete list.
“Our review determined that there were additional products affected by that vitamin premix, and it is for that reason that we are expanding the recall. Hill’s has received a limited number of complaints of pet illness related to some of these products,“ the company said in its statement.
Consumers in the U.S. who purchased the recalled products should stop feeding it to their pets and throw it away, or return unopened cans for a refund. More information can be found on Hill’s website or by calling (800) 445-5777.
