O’Neal’s Feeders Supply of Deridder, Louisiana has announced a voluntary dog food recall involving one of its products due to contamination with aflatoxin.
The event was reported by the Associated Press on December 12, 2011 and involved products distributed in Louisiana and Texas.
So far, we’ve been unable to confirm this event on the FDA website.
Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by a certain species of mold commonly found in cereal grains.
The products were manufactured between December 1, 2010 and December 1, 2011.
According to the Associated Press, no illnesses have been reported.
What to Watch For
According to a previous FDA news release…
“Pets that have consumed any of the above recalled products and exhibit symptoms of illness including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, or diarrhea
should be seen by a veterinarian.”
