11 months ago

United States

Company name: Sunshine Mills, Inc.
Brand name:
Product recalled: Pet Food
Reason of the recall: May Contain Aflatoxin
FDA Recall date: October 08, 2020
Recall details: Company Announcement Sunshine Mills, Inc. is expanding its voluntary recall of certain pet food products that were made with corn that contained Aflatoxin at levels above FDA’s action levels. This is an expansion of the recall initiated September 2, 2020, after an investigation conducted along with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration determined that additional corn-based pet food products produced between April 3, 2020 and April 5, 2020 may contain corn from a single load of corn with elevated levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mold by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities. No illnesses have been reported in association with these products to date, and no other Sunshine Mills, Inc. pet food products are affected by this announcement.

Sunshine Mills, Inc. has chosen to expand its voluntary recall to include these additional products as a precautionary measure in furtherance of its commitment to the safety and quality of its products. Pets with aflatoxin toxicity (aflatoxicosis) may show symptoms of illness including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, diarrhea, and in some cases, death. Pets experiencing any of these symptoms after consuming the recalled products should be seen by a veterinarian.

The affected products were distributed in retail stores within the United States. Principle Super Premium Natural Dog Food is exported exclusively to a distributor in Japan. Sportsman’s Pride Maintenance Adult Formula Dog Food is also exported to a distributor in Japan and Colombia. Retailers who received the recalled lots have been contacted and asked to pull any remaining inventory of these lots from their shelves.

The lot codes can be located on the back of each bag.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should discontinue use of the product and may return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers may contact Sunshine Mills, Inc. customer service at (800) 705-2111 from 7AM to 4PM Central Time, Monday through Friday, or by email at customer.service@sunshinemills.com for additional information.

I gave my 2 dogs dream bone twist sticks and watched them both eat them and did not see either ingest a large chunk of the product. However, early the next morning one of my dogs became ill and began vomiting. He went outside and ate grass... See More so I assumed that maybe he just had an upset stomach but then researched further into this product after my dog again vomited large amounts of clear liquid and grass and read how dangerous these can be. I will be extremely upset if this product has done this to my dog or if it requires more care as far as a vet visit if his symptoms persist or even worse possibility. I do not recommend this product to ANYONE!!!! My dog still will not eat food now and it has been over 24hrs!!!! He is not remotely himself and I feel helpless. Dreambone should not be sold if you can not 100% guarantee the product is digestible and the fact that sorbitol is highly non digestible. | Symptoms: Vomiting See Less

See More recalling approximately 51,000 packages of Simply Nourish frozen dog food, due to it containing elevated levels of Vitamin D. Consumers should stop feeding the products listed below to their dogs. Dogs ingesting elevated levels of Vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss.

No illnesses have been reported to date. No other products have been affected.

The recall was initiated after a routine nutrition test confirmed elevated Vitamin D levels on certain Simply Nourish frozen food products. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem arose as a result of the vitamin mix dosage being significantly reduced by the vitamin mix manufacturer, and this change was not detected or properly communicated. As a result, the dosage was not reduced.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have purchased Simply Nourish Frozen Food are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
