    June 12, 2018 — Dave’s Pet Food of Agawam, MA, is voluntarily recalling a single lot of Dave’s Dog Food 95% Premium Beef cans because the products potentially contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.

    The recalled product consists of a single batch (548 cases) of 13 oz., 95% premium beef dog food with a UPC # of 85038-11167 and a date code of 08/2020.

    • Dave’s Dog Food 95% Premium Beef
      Size: 13-ounce cans
      UPC Code: 85038-11167
      Date Code: 08/2020
    Where Was It Sold?

    The affected product was distributed all along the east coast of the US, sold in pet stores and e-commerce sites.

    About Beef Thyroid Hormone

    Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

    These symptoms may resolve when the consumption of these levels is discontinued.

    However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing.

    Should these symptoms occur, we recommend pet owners contact their veterinarian immediately.

    What Caused the Recall?

    The recall was initiated after FDA informed Dave’s that one lot of product was analyzed and found to have elevated levels of thyroid hormone.

    FDA analyzed the product after receiving a complaint that four dogs consuming it were found to have low Free T4 (fT4) and Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).

    No other Dave’s products, or any other product manufactured by Dave’s Pet Food, are impacted.

    The voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    What to Do?

    Consumers who have purchased the specific product listed above should stop feeding it to their dogs.

    If consumers have questions or would like to receive a refund or coupon for replacement product, they should call the company at 888-763-2738 Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM ET.
