Advanced Animal Nutrition in Thayer, MO has issued a pet food recall
of some of their dry dog foods due to aflatoxin.
THAYER — A Missouri-based company is recalling three dry dog food products because of high levels of the fungus aflatoxin.
Advanced Animal Nutrition of Thayer on Friday voluntarily recalled 50-pound bags each of Dog Power Adult Maintenance Formula 21-12, Dog Power Hunters Formula 27-14 and Dog Power Hi-Pro Performance Formula 26-18.
The company says no illnesses have been reported. The products were distributed in Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. Consumers can return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The recall applies to products with the packaging codes K0004 through K1322.
Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring chemical that comes from a fungus sometimes found on corn and in other crops. It can cause severe liver damage and in rare cases death.
I spoke with someone at the company and was told they found aflatoxin in one of the ingredients but not in any finished products. However, to be cautious, they are recalling the products mentioned above.
Advanced Animal Nutrition does not have a website. There is another company with the same name in Australia, but I was told it is not related to the Advanced Animal Nutrition in Thayer, MO.
