FDA Alerts Pet Owners and Veterinarians About Potentially Toxic Levels of Vitamin D in 44 Varieties of Hill’s Canned Dog Food in Expanded Recall

Fast Facts

  • The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about the expanded recall of 85 total lots of 44 varieties of canned dog foods manufactured by Hill’s Pet Nutrition after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity.
  • Hill’s Pet Nutrition initiated this recall in late January 2019, however, as of March 20, 2019, the firm expanded the scope of the recall to include additional products and product lots.
  • The recall was expanded after the FDA requested that Hill’s test samples of foods it had produced that were not part of the original recall. Hill’s conducted that testing, which led to the expanded recall on March 20, 2019.
  • Testing leading up to the January recall and the March recall expansion found that samples of the dog food contained excessive, potentially toxic amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death.
  • At this time, the only pet products that have been recalled are Hill’s Pet Nutrition canned food made for dogs.
  • Pet owners should discontinue feeding their pets these recalled products.
  • The FDA is asking veterinarians who suspect vitamin D toxicity in their patients to report them through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. Pet owners can also report suspect cases to the FDA.

What is the Problem?

The FDA has become aware of reports of vitamin D toxicity in dogs that ate certain canned dog foods manufactured by Hill’s Pet Nutrition and marketed under the Hill’s Science Diet and Hill’s Prescription Diet brands. This is a developing situation, and the FDA will update this page with additional information as it becomes available.

What are the Symptoms of Vitamin D Toxicity?

Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death. Pet owners whose dogs have been eating the recalled brands and are showing these symptoms should contact their veterinarians.

What Brands Have Been Recalled?

On January 31, 2019, Hill’s Pet Nutrition notified the FDA about a report of vitamin D toxicity in a dog that ate a canned Hill’s dog food and initiated a recall of 25 products. On March 20, 2019, Hill’s expanded the recall to include 19 additional products of canned dog food. The recall is only for canned dog food and does not affect canned cat food, dry food (kibble), or treats.

The recalled products were distributed through retail pet stores and veterinary clinics nationwide.

What is FDA doing to address the situation?'

After receiving a pet owner complaint about a dog with vitamin D toxicity that ate a Hill’s canned dog food, Hill’s Pet Nutrition notified the FDA on January 31, 2019, that it was recalling more than 20 types of canned dog food due to potentially toxic levels of vitamin D.

In response to a complaint submitted to the FDA by a pet owner, FDA requested that Hill’s Pet Nutrition test a retain sample. A retain or retention sample is a sample of food that is held by the manufacturer of previously made product. These samples are used for a variety of reasons including verifying shelf life, quality, microbiological, chemical or physical components. On March 20, 2019 based on findings, the firm subsequently expanded its recall to include an additional 19 lots of food.

FDA scientists are analyzing reports submitted to the agency and the information currently available to determine whether the illnesses are definitively connected to the recalled products.
