Nestlé Purina PetCare Company has expanded a recall of a prescription dog food that may cause vomiting and kidney dysfunction in dogs.
According to our news partners at KTAL-TV, “Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental (PPVD EL) is a prescription dry dog food that was recalled due to “potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.”
The Food and Drug Administration says that a supplier error resulted in potentially elevated levels of the nutrient in two additional product lots. The lots precede the production dates of the lots recalled previously. The original recall was announced on Feb. 8.
The affected batches of dog food include lot Nos. 2213 1082 and 2214 1082, UPC code Nos. 38100 19190 (8-pound bags) and 38100 19192 (20-pound bags), and was sold across the country — including here in the Shreveport area and throughout Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas (the ArkLaTex.)
No other Purina pet care products are involved in the recall.
