All of these canned dog foods with these specific lot codes are being recalled because they may contain too much Vitamin D. According to the FDA, “While Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues.”

The dog foods were distributed across the United States through retail stores and veterinary clinics. No dry foods and no cat foods or treats are being recalled.
