Attention: Pet Food Recall

The FDA is alerting all pet owners about high levels of aflatoxin in some specific pet foods. 28 dogs have been reported dead and 8 others were made sick.

Sportmix products by Midwestern Pet Foods contain the high levels of aflatoxin. The products were voluntarily recalled. The FDA and the company continue to look into the issue.

Pets affected by aflatoxin can display the following symptoms: jaundice, sluggishness, loss of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting. Even if a pet who has consumed the aflatoxin may not show symptoms, pet owners should call their vet as it can cause long term liver damage.
