What triggered the recall?

In house analysis by  Fromm revealed that the affected canned dog foods exceed the recommended levels of vitamin D.
The manufacturer maintains that the voluntary recall is " being implemented in an abundance of caution as symptoms should only be noted in situations where dogs have eaten the affected products as their only meal for an extended period of time and leading to depression of appetite."
To date there have been no reports of any health problems, but Fromm is recommending the affected products not be fed.
the FDA has been notified and we welcome you sharing this information.
