Two major manufacturers, Purina Products and PMI Nutrition International, have recalled several lots of animal feed due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Both companies are voluntarily recalling select products due to sample testing that revealed increased levels of vitamin D. No consumer complaints have been filed with either company to date.
Elevated levels of vitamin D can be harmful to animals if ingested for an extended period of time. Animals that ingest foods with elevated levels of vitamin D are susceptible to reduction in appetite, weight loss, joint stiffness and even death.
