Sportmix Pet Food Expand Recall, More Than 70 Dogs Have Died
The Sportmix pet food recall has been expanded as over 70 dogs have died and over 80 animals have been reported sick according to the Food and Drug Administration.
In December of last year Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. and the FDA issued a recall for some of the company's pet food brands after a reported 28 dogs died from eating the food, all of which had been made at the company's Oklahoma plant.
Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. and the FDA have now expanded the recall to include almost 20 of their brands as dozens more dogs have died according to KATC.com.
The pet potentially contains fatal levels of aflatoxins, produced by mold that can grow on corn which is used to make the food. In high doses the aflatoxins can be fatal to animals.
If your dog has eaten any of the pet food included in the recall and shows symptoms such as sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice, and/or diarrhea, take your pet to your veterinarian asap.
