While the dog food products that are being recalled by Hy-Vee were manufactured in a plant that is operated by Pro-Pet, LLC of Kansas City, the dog food is in several states.
The following information was furnished on the site for Hy-Vee:
Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus mold and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.
Symptoms of aflatoxin poisoning include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums or diarrhea.
The aflatoxin was found during a routine sample inspection of the Hy-Vee dog food that was done by the Iowa Department of Agriculture. This is considered a voluntary recall by Hy-Vee. Aflatoxin poisoning can include lethargy. The pet may not want to eat and may vomit and have diarrhea. Yellowing of the eyes or gums may occur.
Those who suspect their dog has eaten any food that contains aflatoxin should consult their vet.
The only states where this recalled dog food was sold are: Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
