March 18, 2016 — Fromm Family Foods of Mequon, Wisconsin, has announced it is voluntarily recalling three of its canned dog foods because they may contain elevated levels of vitamin D.

The company is recalling all lots of the following three Fromm Gold canned dog foods:
- Fromm Gold Chicken Pate Dog Food
12 ounce cans
Can case code: #11893

The affected products were shipped to distributors between December 2015 and February 2016.
About the Recall
Fromm has discovered through its own analysis that the affected canned dog foods do not contain recommended levels of vitamins and minerals.
These products may contain elevated levels of Vitamin D.
According to the company…
The recall is being implemented in an abundance of caution as symptoms should only be noted in situations where dogs have eaten the affected products as their only meal for an extended period of time and leading to depression of appetite.
While there have been no reports of any health problems, Fromm is recommending the affected products not be fed.
The company has notified the FDA and has also invited distributors as well as The Dog Food Advisor to share the details of this event with consumers.
What to Do?
Recalled product may be returned to authorized Fromm retailers for a full refund.
Consumers with questions may call Fromm Customer Service at 800-325-6331. The company has added additional hours to assist dog owners during the recall.
