Dog food recall over high levels of mold byproduct expands: FDA

Warning Dog Owners: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced it would expand a previously announced dog food recall due to concerns that the products contain a mold by-product that may be above acceptable levels.
Sunshine Mills' expanded recall comes after the company first announced the recall in September for products that contain above the limit of aflatoxin. According to the FDA, at this point it is a "naturally occurring mold by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus" harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities. "
The expanded recall affects dog food that is sold in the United States, but also in Japan and Colombia, according to the FDA.
“The principle of Super Premium Natural Dog Food is exported exclusively to a dealer in Japan. Sportsman's Pride Maintenance Adult Formula dog food is also exported to a distributor in Japan and Colombia. Retailers who received the recalled lots have been contacted and asked to pull the remaining inventory of those lots off their shelves, ”the federal agency said.
Various Sunshine Mills dog food brands have been affected, including Champ, Field Trial, Good Dog, Hunter's Special, Old Glory, Paws Happy Life, Pet Expert, Principle, Retriever, River Bend, and Sportsman's Pride. A full list can be found here.
Pets with aflatoxin toxicity, also known as aflatoxicosis, often show symptoms such as sluggishness or lethargy, "combined with reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowing of the eyes or gums, diarrhea, and in some cases death," according to the FDA. "Pets who develop any of these symptoms after consuming the recalled products should be evaluated by a veterinarian."
Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled products may return it to the point of sale for a full refund, as announced.
Pet owners with additional questions or concerns can contact the company's customer service at (800) 705-2111 or email
This isn't the only recall for Sunshine Mills this year. In late August, the company issued a voluntary recall of Nature's Menu's super premium dog food, made with a mix of real chicken and quail, after a sample of the product tested positive for Salmonella.
