Hundreds of pets have died and others have been sickened after eating recalled pet food manufactured by Midwestern Pet Foods, according to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) updated recall notice.
As of Jan. 21, the FDA became aware that more than 110 dogs died and over 210 others fell ill after consuming food from the company’s Oklahoma plant “that may contain potentially fatal levels of aflatoxins.”
However, as new information becomes available, “case counts and the scope of this recall may expand,” the FDA said.
Earlier this month, the company expanded its recall “out of an abundance of caution” to include all pet food products containing corn that were manufactured in the company’s Oklahoma manufacturing plant and have an expiration date on or before July 9, 2022. Overall, this recall includes 19 products that “may still be on store shelves, online, or in pet owners’ homes,” according to the FDA.
