Blue Buffalo Company is recalling one lot of its BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs. High levels of beef thyroid hormones may cause increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

“Although the Blue Buffalo Customer Care Resource Team has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting these symptoms from consuming this product, the FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog, who has now fully recovered,” a statement reads on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website. ” Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation, however, and after working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it would be prudent to recall the one production lot in question.”

The FDA said symptoms may resolve when the food is discontinued; however, a dog who continues eating the affected food could experience vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing. Pet owners should contact their veterinarian immediately if these symptoms occur.

The product comes in a 12.5-ounce can and has a best-by date of June 7, 2019. The dog food was sold nationally at pet specialty and online retailers.

No other Blue Buffalo products are affected. Click here for information.

WellPet is also recalling a limited amount of Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs due to potential elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone. The 13.2-ounce product has best-by dates of Feb. 2, 2019, Aug. 29, 2019 and Aug. 30, 2019 on the bottom of the can.
