Blue Buffalo is voluntarily recalling specific production runs of their Wilderness Chicken-Dog, Basics Salmon-Dog and Large Breed Adult Dog products because the products may contain too much Vitamin D.
Blue Buffalo products are sold at stores throughout the state of Washington.
The company says "while the potential of increased Vitamin D presents no serious health risk, and any negative reaction to these products has been confined to a very small segment of the canine population who appear to be sensitive to higher levels of Vitamin D, we have a zero tolerance for any product that does not meet our specifications."
Customers who have any products with the codes shown below should stop feeding them immediately.
- BLUE Wilderness Chicken (Dog) 4.5 lb., 11 lb., 24lb. JUL1211B, JUL1311B, JUL2611Z, JUL2711Z, JUL2811Z
- BLUE Basics Salmon (Dog) 11 lb., 24 lb. AUG2111B, AUG2211B
- BLUE Large Breed Adult Chicken 30 lb. SEP 22 11 P, SEP 23 11 P, OCT 26 11 P
The company says the Vitamin D issue does not effect any other code dates of the products or any other Blue Buffalo dog or cat foods.
For information call Blue Buffalo at 1-877-523-9114 to arrange for return of the product and reimbursement.
