Sunshine Mills has now recalled 18 dog food brands, as product samples showed unsafe levels of mold.

Back in September, the Alabama-based company announced it was recalling three of its dogs brands — Family Pet, Heartland Farms and Paws Happy Life — after a toxin was discovered in a a sample during an inspection by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry. Now Sunshine Mills has expanded its voluntary recall.

Last week, it was announced on the FDA website that 15 additional dog brands under the Sunshine Mills umbrella were also being pulled from shelves.

The toxin, called Aflatoxin, is produced by the mold Aspergillus flavus. It can be present on dog food, even if you can’t see mold. If ingested, it can cause a dog to became sick and may lead to death, as it can build up in a dog’s system over time.

Signs of Aflatoxin poisoning may include loss of appetite, tiredness, vomiting, jaundice around the eyes or gums and diarrhea. Dogs may also suffer liver damage and not show any signs.  

If you have fed your dog the below brands, stop and contact your vet. If your pup appears to be sick or is displaying any of the above symptoms, it is important to take your furry to the vet right away. Contact the FDA to report any possible cases, as the investigation is ongoing.
