FDA extends Sportmix pet food recall from Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. after the death of 70 pets



NEW YORK – The FDA is expanding a recall of dry pet food after more than 70 pets died and dozens of others became ill.

The manufacturer of the Sportmix pet food only remembered some products last month after it was discovered that it can contain deadly levels of a mold.

As of Monday, the FDA said they are aware of more than 70 pets that have died and more than 80 that have become ill after eating Sportmix pet food.

The FDA says not all cases have been officially confirmed as aflatoxin poisoning through laboratory tests or veterinary records.

But now the company is adding corn-containing products to the recall list.

Some of the reported symptoms include fatigue, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice and diarrhea. In some cases, pets may suffer liver damage but do not show other symptoms.

Pet owners should stop feeding their pets the recalled products and consult their veterinarian, especially if their pet shows signs of illness.
