My biggest fear is to feed my furry kidz dog food that has been recalled after it's already caused other dogs to not just become ill, but even caused death. So I try to keep an eye out for any pet food recall. One popped up today.

We snap a pic of the code and date on the bag for this reason so if you place your dogs food in a container and toss out the bag you'll know for sure if their food is the one affected. 

So far at least eleven different brands are being recalled because of dangerous levels of vitamin D. The FDA says some brands contain as much as 70 times the safe level and could kill dogs. In less serious cases, it could lead to vomiting and weight loss.

Some of the recalled brands are Nutrisca, Natural Life, Evolve, Sportsman's Pride, Abound, and Nature's Promise. FDA reports it is a developing situation and additional recalls may be announced.
