Addiction Foods Recalls Select Canned Dog Food Products

The Addiction Foods recalled products were shipped to select distributors and online retailers between between February 11 and March 19, 2016. They include:

During testing Addiction Foods identified elevated levels of Vitamin A and slight variance in calcium/ phosphorous ratios in the affected lots.

At the time of the release there were no reports of animal health concerns. However, Addiction Foods recalled these products out of an abundance of caution.

Addiction Foods advises customers who have purchased products listed above to discontinue the use of the food immediately and return any unused cans to the place of purchase for a full refund.
