Hy-Vee recalling dog foodPublished 8:34pm Saturday, February 23, 2013
Grocery store chain Hy-Vee says it’s recalling some bags of Hy-Vee dog food that might contain a toxin commonly found in corn.
The Iowa-based company says tests conducted by the Iowa Department of Agriculture indicated higher-than-normal levels of aflatoxin in some samples of the dog food made at a Kansas City plant operated by Pro-Pet, LLC.
Aflatoxins are chemicals produced by fungi on corn that can sicken pets. Symptoms include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums and diarrhea.
The recalled products carry three different “Best By” dates and were distributed to Hy-Vee stores in Minnesota, along with Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin between Oct. 26 and Jan. 11.
