Wellness Dog Food Voluntary Recall
Yesterday, Wellness Dog Food announced a voluntary recall of its Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs because it may contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone.
Recalled Product Details:
• Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs – 13.2 oz
• Best-By Dates of 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19, located on the bottom of the can
Elevated levels of this hormone may affect a dog’s metabolism.
Other symptoms include increased thirst, increased urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss.
Wellness has received no reports of any health problems as a result of feeding this recipe. No other Wellness products are affected.
The likelihood of a dog getting sick from the affected product is remote.
The recipe is just a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only,
Multiple studies indicate that, for most pets, symptoms are reversible when the pet stops eating product with elevated thyroid hormone.
The chance that the product will sicken a dog is remote. Still, Wellness voluntarily recalled this recipe with these three best-by dates.
If you have any of the 13.2 oz recipe with these three best-by dates, please email Wellness at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-877-227-9587.
