Blue Buffalo Recalls One Lot of Wet Food for Adult Dogs

By Megan Sullivan    March 20, 2017 / (0) comments

Blue Buffalo, a Connecticut-based pet food manufacturer, has voluntarily recalled one production lot of wet food for adult dogs, due to potentially elevated levels of naturally-occurring beef thyroid hormones.

 

The recall is limited to the following product:

 

Product Name: BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain RecipeTM Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs 12.5 oz. can

UPC Code: 840243101153

Best By Date: June 7, 2019

 

Consumers can find the best-by date on the bottom of the can.

 

According to a press release on the Blue Buffalo website, “Dogs ingesting high levels of beef thyroid hormones may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate, and restlessness. These symptoms may resolve when the use of the impacted food is discontinued. However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing. Should these symptoms occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.”

 

Although Blue Buffalo has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting these symptoms from consuming this product, the FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog, who has now fully recovered, the press release stated.

 

If your pet has consumed this product and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian.

 

Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and online retailers. Consumers who have purchased the recalled product should dispose of it or return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.

 

For any questions, customers may contact Blue Buffalo at 866-201-9072 from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or by email at [email protected] for more information.

 

No other Blue Buffalo products are impacted by this issue.
