Voluntary RECALL: WELLNESS 95% Beef Topper

A small amount of one recipe has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone. In an abundance of caution, we are voluntarily recalling a limited amount of one canned dog food product.
From the Wellness website:


At WellPet, our team takes food safety matters very seriously, so in an abundance of caution, we are voluntarily recalling a limited amount of one canned dog food product.


Recalled Product Details:
• Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs – 13.2 oz
• Best-By Dates of 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19, located on the bottom of the can
(Please click here for a photo of the product and how the Best-By Date appears.)
A small amount of one recipe has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone. Elevated levels may affect a dog’s metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst, increased urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss. Even though the chance of a dog being affected is remote, we are voluntarily recalling this recipe and only these three best-by dates as an extra precaution.
Our Consumer Affairs team has received no reports of any health problems as a result of feeding this recipe. No other Wellness products are affected.
Given that the recipe is a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only, the likelihood of a dog being affected is remote. Multiple studies indicate that, for the vast majority of pets, symptoms are reversible as soon as the pet stops eating product with elevated thyroid hormone.


If you have any of the 13.2 oz recipe with these three best-by dates, please email us at [email protected] or call us at 1-877-227-9587.
Please know that safeguarding the health and wellbeing of pets is of the utmost importance to us. We fully intend on maintaining the trust you have placed in us to keep your pets healthy and happy, and are removing this product as part of our ongoing commitment to quality and food safety.
Sincerely,
Camelle Kent
Chief Executive Officer

Wellness canned products are packed by The Simmons Company.

Blue Buffalo will not divulge Who packs their food.

Sure is interesting that BOTH companies are voluntarily recalling for the SAME problem!!! Hmmmmmm!
