Given that all but 2 of the listed brands are chicken-based, it's tempting to see chicken as the cause...then there's the 2 ANF foods that are lamb-based (only distributed in Puerto Rico), so who knows?

Thanks for passing this along!

Mt bet would be whatever vitamin mix was used is the issue. I would not be surprised to find out the foods all used the same mix or a from the same source.

Vitamin D is added. It has nothing to do with the specific protein used.

I agree!


For those who are not aware: To get a "Complete & Balanced" AAFCO statement on their pet food labels, companies can use a vitamin/mineral "Pre-Mix" pack in their foods. Some companies will "test" these mixes for possible problems before using them.....some will not. Some companies go with the cheapest they can find to make their profits larger.



As Bramble stated, if different companies are purchasing that "pre-mix" from the same supplier, and the vitamin/mineral batches are Incorrectly mixed.......other brands may follow!

Snippet from Poisoned Pets:


WILL MORE BRANDS OF DOG FOOD BE RECALLED?
At this point, I don’t know. All we can do is wait until the FDA reveals the name of the contract manufacturer. Although the name of the contract manufacturer hasn’t officially been named, the smart money is riding on Sunshine Mills. According to PetFood Industry Magazine, “Sunshine Mills, a co-packer or contract manufacturer, seems to have produced all the recalled dog foods, although the pet foods were marketed under different names.”


WHO IN THE WORLD IS SUNSHINE MILLS?
According to Sunshine’s website, their “products are marketed under various Sunshine brands as well as private label offerings” sold in the United States and in “more than 30 countries worldwide.”
While it is too early to speculate which other pet food brands Sunshine makes might also have toxic amounts of vitamin D in it, until Sunshine Mills issues a press release disclosing the exact details and the extent of the problem, consumers – frantic with anxiety – will have to wait.


WHAT BRANDS HAVE BEEN RECALLED (SO FAR)?
According to the FDA, “this is a developing situation, and this list may not be complete. The FDA will update this list as more information becomes available.”
The list of recalled dry dog food products provided to the FDA include:
