Hy-Vee Dog Food Recall 25 Feb 13

Grocery store chain Hy-Vee is recalling some bags of Hy-Vee dog food that might contain a toxin commonly found in corn. The company says that tests indicated higher-than-normal levels of aflatoxin in some samples of the dog food. Aflatoxins are chemicals produced by fungi on corn that can sicken pets. Symptoms include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums and diarrhea. The recalled products carry three different “Best By” dates and were distributed to Hy-Vee stores in 8 states, including Minnesota, between October 26th and January 11th.
