Wellness and Blue Buffalo Food Recalls

Wag N' Wash® Natural Food & Bakery
Published on: March 18, 2017

Wellness

Wag N' WashWellPet has issued a voluntary recall of 3 lots of one of its canned dog food products due to elevated levels of naturally occurring thyroid hormone.

Recalled product includes:
– Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs
– Size: 13.2 ounce cans
– Best-By Dates: 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19
Best-By dates can be found on the bottom of each can.

About the recall:
Elevated levels of thyroid hormone may affect a dog’s metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst and urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss.
Multiple studies indicate that for the vast majority of pets, symptoms are reversible as soon as the pet stops eating product with elevated thyroid hormone.
Because the recipe is a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only, the likelihood of a dog being affected is remote.
WellPet has received no reports of any health problems as a result of feeding the affected recipe.
However, the company is voluntarily recalling three best-by dates as an extra level of precaution.

Wag N’ Wash customers who have any concerns may always return any food, any time for a full refund.

Blue Buffalo

Wag N' WashBlue Buffalo Company is voluntarily recalling one production lot of Blue Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs, as the product has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormones.

Recalled product includes:
– BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food
– Size: 12.5 ounce cans
– Best-By Dates: June 7, 2019
Best-By dates can be found on the bottom of each can.

About the recall:
Dogs ingesting high levels of beef thyroid hormones may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. These symptoms may resolve when the use of the impacted food is discontinued. However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing. Should these symptoms occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.
Although the Blue Buffalo Customer Care Resource Team has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting these symptoms from consuming this product, the FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog. Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation. After working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it would be prudent to recall the one production lot in question. The one dog was also being fed non-Blue Buffalo food and has fully-recovered.

Wag N’ Wash customers who have any concerns may always return any food, any time for a full refund.
