Four dogs fell ill, leading to an FDA investigation and a limited recall of this Dave’s Pet Food product. Learn more in this urgent recall announcement.

Maker: Dave’s Pet Food
Cause: Potential for elevated beef thyroid hormone
Announcement: FDA announcement dated June 12, 2018 (archived here)
What was recalled: 13 oz. cans of Dave’s 95% Premium Beef dog food, UPC #85038-11167, best by August 2020

According to the recall announcement, this recall was limited to a single batch of this canned dog food. This is the 2nd recall in Dave’s Pet Food history — the previous one, in 2015, was initiated because of an “off odor.”

“Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness,” the FDA states, adding that vomiting and diarrhea could ensue with prolonged consumption.

At least 4 dogs fell ill after consuming the affected product, which was distributed in the eastern United States and was sold in pet stores and online.

No other Dave’s products, nor any other product manufactured by Dave’s Pet Food, are affected.
