Blue Buffalo wet dog food recalled due to potential health risk

Potential health risk prompts dog food recall

Blue Buffalo has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting symptoms from consuming the product.

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

Elevated levels may affect a dog's metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst and urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss, according to Blue Buffalo and WellPet. The symptoms should resolve once the food is discontinued.

Blue Buffalo made a decision to recall the product after the FDA notified the company that a consumer reported a dog exhibited symptoms after consumption of the product being recalled.

The Blue Buffalo team reported that it had yet to receive word of dogs experiencing such symptoms.

The product comes in a 12.5-ounce can and has a best-by date of June 7, 2019. If your pet is showing any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately. At this time, no other Blue Buffalo products were said to have been affected by the issue. It was sold nationally through pet stores and online retailers.

If you purchased the recalled product, throw it away, or you can return the dog food to where you bought it for a full refund. Because the recipe is a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only, the company says the likelihood of a dog being affected is remote.
