Aflatoxin Leads To Another Dog Food Recall



Published:

O’Neal’s Feeders Supply Inc. of DeRidder, La., voluntarily recalled some lots of its dry Arrow Brand dog food because it contains corn with higher than acceptable levels of aflatoxin.

The affected products were manufactured between Dec. 1, 2010, and Dec. 1, 2011, and include:

• Arrow Brand 21 percent Dog Chunks, SKU #807, 40-pound bag.
• Arrow Brand Super Proeaux Dog Food, SKU #812, 40-pound bag.
• Arrow Brand Professional Formula Dog Food, SKU #814, 50-pound bag.

The recall applies only to the products above that show packaging date codes 4K0341 through 4K0365 and 04K1001 through 4K1325.

The dry dog foods were distributed in Louisiana and Texas. Retailers were instructed to remove the affected brands and products from store shelves.

No illnesses have been reported in association with the recalled products, and the recall was precautionary.

The company urged consumers to return the recalled products, whether opened or opened, to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mold byproduct. Pets that consumed the recalled product and showed signs of sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, a yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, or diarrhea should be seen by a veterinarian, the company advised.

Several other companies have issued recalls of dry dog food in December, including Cargill Animal Nutrition, Procter and Gamble, Advanced Animal Nutrition and Petrus Feed & Seed.
