Dog Food Recalled After Reports of Vitamin D Toxicity

On November 2, 2018, Natural Life Pet Products and Nutrisca issued a recall of certain dry dog foods because they contain elevated levels of vitamin D. The elevated levels of vitamin D were found during an investigation into several reports of vitamin D toxicity by pet owners.
