Grocery store with Madison location recalling dog food

Posted:

WEST DES MOINES (WKOW) -- Grocery store chain Hy-Vee says it's recalling some bags of ITS Hy-Vee dog food that might contain a toxin commonly found in corn.

The company, based in Iowa, says testing by Iowa health officials indicates higher-than-normal levels of aflatoxin in some samples of the dog food made at a Kansas City plant operated by Pro-Pet, LLC.

Aflatoxins are chemicals produced by fungi on corn. They can make pets sick, with symptoms including sluggishness or lethargy, a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums and diarrhea.

The recalled bags carry three different "Best By" dates and were distributed to Hy-Vee stores in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin between Oct. 26 and Jan. 11.

Hy-Vee has one location in East Madison and another under construction in West Madison.

More information can be found on Hy-Vee's website, www.hy-vee.com.
