The recall is the result of an investigation that uncovered a production error that resulted in potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but high levels can lead to various health problems.

The affected dog food was sold by prescription only. Owners who bought bags are asked to stop feeding it and throw it away in a container where no other animals, including wildlife, can get to it.
