Dave's Pet Food says that a small quantity of its 95% premium beef may contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone. As a result, the company is recalling the impacted dog food.

The recalled dog food was distributed all along the east coast of the United States and sold in pet stores and online.

Recalled Product Details

The affected 95% premium beef dog food comes in a 13 oz. can that contains a UPC number of 85038-11167 and a date code of 08/2020.

No other Dave's Pet Food products are included in this recall.

Risks of Elevated Thyroid Hormone

Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate, and restlessness. These symptoms may resolve when the consumption of these levels is discontinued. If consumption is prolonged, these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing.

Should these symptoms occur, pet owners should contact their veterinarian immediately.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should not feed the recalled food to their dogs. To receive a refund or coupon for a replacement product, contact Dave's Pet Food at (888) 763-2738.
