Tewksbury, Massachusetts-based WellPet, the parent company that produces Wellness pet food and treats, is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of one canned dog food product that has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally occurring thyroid hormone.


The product affected by the recall is as follows:

According to an email from the company, elevated levels of naturally occurring thyroid hormone may affect a dog’s metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst, increased urinary output, restless behavior, and weight loss.
