Deadly Toxin Found in Certain Pet Foods Containing Grains

It’s a scary thought.  You buy your pet

It’s a scary thought.  You buy your pet food only to find out later that it’s been recalled for having elevated levels of a deadly toxin.  However, this fear has become a reality for some.

Earlier this month, three types of dog food sold at a national retailer were recalled for having elevated levels of aflatoxin which is found in grains.  Although a very small amount of this toxin is considered acceptable, these dog foods had exceeded the allowed amount.

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry along with Louisiana State University announced the results of their testing to the public and noted that “Aflatoxin is a potent carcinogen that in this case could have been harmful to pets” and that “This type of testing is all part of our regular efforts to protect animal and public health”.  However, what is your dog food hasn’t been tested yet?
