Company announcement

On August 13, 2021, Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company of Monroe, Washington is recalling approximately 51,000 packages of Simply Nourish frozen dog food because it contains high levels of vitamin D.

Consumers should stop giving the products listed below to their dogs. Dogs ingesting high levels of vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels or over a long period of time, can lead to serious health problems in dogs, including kidney dysfunction. Consumers who have dogs that have consumed any of the products listed below and are exhibiting these symptoms should contact their veterinarian.

The affected Simply Nourish frozen food products have been distributed to select PetSmart stores nationwide.

Products are packaged in 2 lb and 4.5 lb packages in specific date ranges. Below is the full list of affected products:

No illness has been reported to date. No other product was affected.

The recall was initiated after a routine nutritional test confirmed high levels of vitamin D in certain Simply Nourish frozen food products. Further investigation indicates that the problem arose due to the significant reduction in the dosage of the vitamin blend by the manufacturer of the vitamin blend, and this change was not detected or properly communicated. As a result, the dosage was not reduced. We care deeply about our customers and their pets, and have corrective measures in place to ensure this problem does not reoccur.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the United States Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have purchased Simply Nourish frozen foods are asked to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers who have questions can contact the company at 1-866-938-6673 Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PST.
