Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company Voluntary Recall: Simply Nourish Brand Frozen Dog Food

2 min read

Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company of Monroe, Washington, is recalling approximately 51,000 packs of Simply Nourish frozen dog food because it contains elevated levels of vitamin D.

Consumers should stop feeding their dogs the products listed below. Dogs that ingest increased levels of vitamin D may experience symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed in very large amounts or over a long period of time, can cause serious health problems, including kidney problems, in dogs. Consumers who have dogs who have consumed any of the products listed below and who have these symptoms should contact their veterinarian.

Affected Simply Nourish frozen products were sold in selected PetSmart stores across the country.

The products are packaged in 2-lb and 4.5-lb packages for specific date ranges. A full list of affected products can be found below:

No diseases have been reported so far. Other products are not affected.

The recall began after a routine nutritional test confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D in certain Simply Nourish frozen products. Subsequent investigations showed that the problem arose from the fact that the dosage of the vitamin mix was significantly reduced by the manufacturer of the vitamin mix and this change was not recognized or correctly communicated. As a result, the dosage was not reduced. We care deeply about our customers and their pets and have taken corrective action to ensure this issue does not happen again.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the US Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have purchased Simply Nourish frozen foods are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 1-800-938-6673 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PST.
