Fromm Family Foods is voluntarily recalling all lots of three canned dog food products because they may not contain the recommended level of added vitamins and nutrients, and may contain elevated levels of vitamin D.
The company sent a letter to distributors March 14, but has not yet announced the recall.
The follow 12-ounce canned dog products are included in the recall:
- Fromm Gold Chicken Pate — Can case code: #11893; UPC: 72705 11892
- Fromm Gold Chicken & Duck — Can case code: #11895; UPC: 72705 11894
- Fromm Gold Salmon & Chicken Pate — Can case code: #11891; UPC: 72705 11890
The recalled products were shipped to distributor warehouses from December 2015 through February 2016. The letter asked distributors to quarantine these products and notify customers about the recall.
“This recall is being implemented in an abundance of caution, as symptoms should only be noted in situations where dogs have eaten the affected products as their only meal for an extended period of time, which could lead to depression of appetite,” wrote Tom Nieman, president of Fromm Family Foods, in the letter. “While there have been no reports of any health problems, Fromm is recommending the affected products not be fed.”
According to comments on Dog Food Advisor, this is the first recall in Fromm Family Foods’ history. The fifth-generation family-owned artisan pet food company, based in Mequon, Wisc., was started in 1904.
Last week, Nestle Purina voluntarily recalled some Beneful and Pro Plan dog food, also because it did not contain the recommended amounts of added vitamins and minerals.
