Hy-Vee Dog Food Recall: Aflatoxin Risk

By February 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Hy-Vee, Inc. has recalled some packages of Hy-Vee dog food because of corn contaminated with high levels of alfatoxin. The dog food is produced in a plant operated by Pro-Pet, LLC of Kansas City.

Aflatoxin is naturally produced by certain molds, and consuming too much can cause your pet to act sluggish, lose his appetite, produce vomiting or diarrhea and sometimes jaundice (yellow tinge to the eyes or gums). To date, no dogs have been reported to have become sick, and all implicated products have been removed from the store shelves.

The recalled items were distributed between October 26, 2012 and January 11, 2013 to Hy-Vee stores in the states of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Any of the recalled Hy-Vee dog food may be returned to Hy-Vee stores for a full refund. For questions, contact the company at  (800) 289-8343 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm CST.
