It seems that more and more companies are recalling many of their products these days. Maybe it’s the lack of the human element because everything is so dependent on machines. It could also be (and the more likely scenario) that GMO’s are hurting us all. In the past year alone, I have seen countless recalls for food products meant for human consumption but this is different.

Blue Buffalo, known for their quality dog food products, is the latest in a long line of company recalls.  The product in question is BLUE Wilderness® Rocky Mountain RecipeTM Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs. Apparently, the product contains high levels of naturally- occurring beef thyroid hormones.

According to AFF:

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, who has now fully recovered.

The voluntary recall is limited to one production lot of the following product:

Product Name UPC Code Best Buy Date
BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain
Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet
Food for Adult Dogs 12.5 oz can
840243101153 June 7, 2019 (found
on the bottom of the can)

Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and on-line retailers.

No other Blue Buffalo products are impacted by this issue.
