Blue Buffalo Dog Food Recall Event Number 2 of March 2017

Folks, you read it right…there has been yet ANOTHER dog food recall…this time Blue Buffalo Rocky Mountain Recipe. It contains the same naturally occurring thyroid hormone we just published in our previous blog post.

My guess is that these companies are using the same beef suppliers? I wonder how this naturally occurring hormone is being found in excess in this meat?

What are your thoughts on this? We’d love to read them!

Complete details of the second Blue Buffalo dog food recall event of March 2017 as reported by the editors of the Dog Food Advisor:

March 17, 2017 — Blue Buffalo Company is voluntarily recalling one production lot of BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs because the product may contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone.

What’s Being Recalled?

The recall is limited to one production lot of the following product:

  • BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet
    Food for Adult Dogs
  • Size: 12.5 ounce can
  • UPC Code: 840243101153
  • Best-By Date: June 7, 2019 (bottom of can)

Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and on-line retailers.

No other Blue Buffalo products are impacted by this issue.

About the Recall

Dogs ingesting high levels of beef thyroid hormones may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

These symptoms may resolve when the use of the impacted food is discontinued.

However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing.

Should symptoms occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Although the Blue Buffalo Customer Care Resource Team has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting these symptoms from consuming this product, the FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog, who has now fully recovered.

Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation.

However, after working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it would be prudent to recall the one production lot in question.

What to Do?

If your pet has consumed the product listed above and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian.

Consumers who have purchased the product subject to this recall should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Blue Buffalo at 866-201-9072 from 8 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time Monday through Friday.

Or by email at CustomerCare@bluebuffalo.com.

Wellness Dog Food Recall of March 2017

Wellness Dog Food company has issued a recall for it’s 95% Beef canned variety because of  a naturally occuring beef thyroid hormone found present in the food. The hormone can affect metabolism, but thankfully side effects are reversible. Read on for details!

Complete details of the March 2017 Wellness dog food recall as reported by the editors of the Dog Food Advisor:

What’s Being Recalled?

Recalled product includes:

  • Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs
  • Size: 13.2 ounce cans
  • Best-By Dates: 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19

Best-By dates can be found on the bottom of each can.

No other Wellness products are affected.

 

About the Recall

Elevated levels of thyroid hormone may affect a dog’s metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst and urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss.

Multiple studies indicate that for the vast majority of pets, symptoms are reversible as soon as the pet stops eating product with elevated thyroid hormone.

Because the recipe is a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only, the likelihood of a dog being affected is remote.

WellPet has received no reports of any health problems as a result of feeding the affected recipe.

However, the company is voluntarily recalling three best-by dates as an extra level of precaution.

What to Do?

If you have any of the 13.2 ounce cans of this specific recipe and marked with one of the three best-by dates, please email the company at wecare@wellpet.com

Or call the company at 877-227-9587.

U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.
