Blue Buffalo Inc. has issued a voluntary recall on specific production runs of its Wilderness Chicken-Dog, Basics Salmon-Dog and Large Breed Adult Dog products due to higher than normal levels of vitamin D.
â€œWe came to this conclusion after discovering that our supplier had made a scheduling error and produced a vitamin D supplement immediately prior to preparing the ingredients for the Blue products that are in question,â€ CEO Bill Bishop said today in a letter posted on the companyâ€™s website. â€œWe believe that some of the vitamin D supplement may have been carried over into our products, resulting in more vitamin D than is called for in our formulas.â€
Bishop noted that the potential of increased vitamin D presents no serious health risk. However, if a dog shows any adverse reaction to the recalled products, the dog should be seen by a veterinarian, he added. Typical symptoms might include excessive water intake and/or excessive urination, and in some cases vomiting.
Bishop said Blue Buffalo will reimburse any veterinary or testing expenses related to illness caused by the recalled products.
