Alert: FDA Recalls Dog Food With Fatal Aflatoxin Levels After 70+ Dogs Die

Sportmix Pet Food products are currently being recalled after the FDA was notified about extraordinary levels of aflatoxins and multiple dog deaths. It was on January 11, 2021 that Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. expanded the recall.

The recall currently consists of all pet foods that contain corn and was manufactured in the company’s Oklahoma plant with expiration dates on or before July 9, 2022. The FDA is aware of more than 70 plus dogs who have died and more than 80 that had gotten sick after eating Sportmix pet food.
