Pet food recalled after deaths of at least 28 dogs


The U.S. #Food and #Drug #Administration (FDA) has recalled certain varieties of #Sportmix pet food due to toxic levels of aflatoxin. #Regulators said #Wednesday they’re aware of at least 28 dogs that have died due to the toxic mold and at least eight that have been sickened.

#Alfatoxin is produced by a mold that can grow on corn and other grains used as ingredients in pet food. The #Missouri #Department of #Agriculture tested samples of #Sportmix varieties and found very high levels of the toxin.

#Symptoms of alfatoxin poisoning in pets include sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice and/or diarrhea. #Those whose pets have eaten #Sportmix products are advised to call their veterinarian, especially if their pets are showing symptoms.

#According to the FDA, there is no evidence that humans who handle the food are at risk of alfatoxin poisoning. #For more information on the recall, click here.

#In #October, pet food company #Sunshine #Mills #Inc expanded its recall for products that may contain high levels of alfatoxin.
