Hy-Vee Dog Food Recall

Hy-Vee Inc. has issued a recall of certain dog products due to higher than accepted levels of aflatoxin found in some samples.

Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by the fungus Aspergillus flavus and can cause serious illness or death in pets.

Signs of aflatoxin poisoning in pets include: lethargy, reluctance to eat, yellowish tint to the eyes and/or gums, and severe or bloody diarrhea. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet is displaying any of these signs.

For a list of the UPC and "Best Buy Dates" of the affected products, visit:

Customers are urged to refrain from feeding any of the recalled products to their pets. Any bags of Hy-Vee dog food subject to the recall, whether opened or unopened, may be returned to Hy-Vee stores for a full refund.

Customers with questions may contact the company at 800-289-8343. This number is staffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST.
