August 31, 2016 — Addiction Foods of Seattle, WA, has announced it is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of its New Zealand Brushtail and Vegetable and New Zealand Venison and Apple canned dog foods.

What’s Being Recalled?

The affected product was shipped to select distributors and online retailers between February 11, 2016 and March 19, 2016 and include the following:

Addiction New Zealand Brushtail and Vegetables Canned Dog Food Entrée
Size: 13.8oz/390g
UPC Code: 8 885004 070028
Lot Number: 8940:02Dec2018
Expiration Date: December 2018

Addiction New Zealand Venison and Apples Canned Dog Food Entrée
Size: 13.8oz/390g
UPC Code: 8 885004 070462
Lot Number: 8936:01Dec2018
Expiration Date: December 2018

No other Addiction Pet Food products are affected by this recall.

What Caused the Recall
Addiction’s testing has identified elevated levels of Vitamin A and a slight variance in calcium / phosphorous ratios.
There have been no reports of animal health concerns. However, the company claims the affected lots do not meet its quality standards.
According to the company, Addiction Food’s top priority is the safety and quality of its products. For this reason, they are taking immediate action and implementing additional operating procedures to prevent a similar issue from occurring in the future.

What It Means to You
If dogs were fed exclusively these products for 60 days, the expected effect would be a reduction in appetite.
Exposure to excessive Vitamin A levels for an extended period of time may cause adverse health consequences in young, growing animals.
Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, the company is voluntarily recalling these products.

What to Do?
Consumers who purchased the affected items are asked to discontinue use of the product.
Unused cans may be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Consumers may contact the company at 425-251-0330, Monday thru Friday 9am to 5pm PST.
