FDA: Dog food recalled due to possibly toxic levels of vitamin D

An American dog food maker is recalling some of its products after reports that the food had elevated levels of vitamin D that can make dogs sick.

Nutrisca is recalling certain bags of its Chicken and Chickpea Dry Dog Food that was sold nationwide, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The company has received three complaints of vitamin D toxicity from the food, the company said.

Dogs can show symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased urination and excessive drooling after eating too much vitamin D, the company said.

The recall affects:

- 4-pound bags with UPC 8-84244-12495-7
- 15-pound bags with UPC 8-84244-12795-8
- 28-pound bags with UPC 8-84244-12895-5

Anyone who has the food should take their dog to a veterinarian if the dog is showing symptoms. The company asks consumers to dispose of the food or return it to the store for a full refund.
