Has Simply Nourish Ever Been Recalled?

Yes. A limited recall of certain packages of Simply Nourish frozen dog food was initiated in August 2021 after tests showed higher levels of Vitamin D in the product than is allowed.

According to the manufacturer, Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company of Monroe, Washington, the fault lied squarely with the vitamin mix manufacturer — who allegedly failed to “detect or properly communicate” that there was an issue.
