The Blue Buffalo Company announced yesterday a voluntary recall a one production lot of BLUE Wilderness® Rocky Mountain RecipeTM Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs because it has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally-occurring beef thyroid hormones.
Wellness Dog Food announced a recall yesterday for the same reason.
Dogs ingesting high levels of beef thyroid hormones may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. These symptoms may resolve when the use of the impacted food is discontinued. However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing. Should these symptoms occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.
The voluntary recall is limited to one production lot of the following product:
|Product Name||UPC Code||Best Buy Date|
|BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet
Food for Adult Dogs 12.5 oz can
|840243101153||June 7, 2019 (found on the bottom of the can)|
The FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog, who has now fully recovered. Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation and, after working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it should recall the one production lot in question.
Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and on-line retailers.
If your pet has consumed the product listed above and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian.
Consumers who have purchased the product subject to this recall should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for full refund.
This is the third recall issued by Blue Buffalo this year. On February 14 it announced a recall due to possible aluminum contamination. It issued another recall on March 5 due a problem with foil seal of some products.
