The Food and Drug Administration has expanded its recall of dog food brands that have too much Vitamin D, which could make your pets sick.


The food was sold nationwide in both stores and online, and the FDA says the list of recalled products could continue to grow.


Luckily none of the tainted foods were sold at storefronts here in Nevada, but we reached out to Chewy, an online retailer of pet food and supplies. They say that they were aware of the recall before it was published with the FDA and did quarantine the tainted food before it was sent out to customers.


Some of the recalls are as follows:



Chicken and Chickpea Dry Dog Food


Natural Life Pet Products

Chicken and Potato Dry Dog Food


Sunshine Mills, Inc.

Old Glory Hearty Turkey and Cheese Flavor Dog Food Evolve Chicken and Rice Puppy Dry Dog Food Sportsman's Pride Large Breed Puppy Dry Dog Food Triumph Chicken and Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food


ANF, Inc.

ANF Lamb and Rice Dry Dog Food


Lidl (Orlando brand)

Orlando Grain-Free Chicken and Chickpea Superfood Recipe Dog Food



Abound Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe Dog Food


Elm Pet Foods, Inc.

Elm Chicken and Chickpea Recipe

Elm K9 Naturals Chicken Recipe


Ahold Delhaize

Nature's Promise Chicken and Brown Rice Dog Food Nature's Place Real Country Chicken and Brown Rice Dog Food


King Soopers

Abound Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe Dog Food


A complete listing of all brands involved may be found on the FDA website (<https://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/NewsEvents/ucm627485.htm>).

The following lists the requirements of the Arizona Commercial Feed Law and Rules pertaining to the distribution of commercial feed in the State of Arizona:

No person may manufacture or distribute commercial feed in this state without a commercial feed license from this Division, with the exceptions outlined under ARS 3-2609. The licensing period will be July 1st through June 30th of each year. The duration period may be either one or two years at the company’s discretion. A license fee of ten dollars ($10.00) is required yearly and must accompany the license application. Each application will be subject to review for proper completion. If all information is supplied, a license will be issued.
  • Registration of individual products is not required. The license allows distribution of any feed with your company name on the label; and 

  • The Licensing Section requests a copy of each feed label your company intends to distribute within the trade channels of Arizona be sent with the application.


Tonnage Reports

Quarterly Tonnage reports are required, together with a tonnage fee at the rate of twenty cents ($0.20) per ton (or parts thereof rounded to the nearest whole ton) that was distributed during the quarter. A minimum fee of $2.00 must be included. If you fail to file this report (even with no distribution), a minimum late fee of either $10.00 or 10% of the total amount due depending on which is the greater amount is required.

  • The tonnage report form will be sent to the last address of record for each licensee during the last month of the quarter. Failure to receive the tonnage report form does not relieve the license of their responsibility to submit a report.

  • If the tonnage report form is not received by the end of the quarter or within the first week following the end of the quarter please contact us via email at [email protected] or via telephone at 602-542-3578.
