Wellness Small Breed Adult Food Recall

veterinary news

Wellness Natural Pet Food has announced a recall on their Facebook page.  The recall affects 12 pound bags of Small Breed Adult Health Dry Dog Food with a best by date of Aug 18, 2013.    The reason for the recall is that the batch has a higher than acceptable level of moisture.

I have written about moisture related recalls in the past.  Here are a few:

Bil Jac Recall because of mold

Milkbone Recall

Lafeber Treat Recall

Why is moisture an issue?

If there is too much moisture in a food then the risk is that the food can become mouldy.  Some kinds of mold are not terribly dangerous but may   cause the food to taste a little off.  But, some kinds of mold can produce something called mycotoxins.  Mycotoxins can cause severe vomiting and diarrhea or neurological issues such as tremors or seizures.


Have you been affected?

At this point there have not been any reported cases of dogs getting sick.  If you feel that your dog is ill because of eating Wellness small breed adult dog food then please leave a comment below.  Your comments will help other people who are looking for information.
