05/22/2019 – UPDATE
Once again, Hill’s Pet Nutrition is expanding the list of its canned dog food found to contain elevated levels of vitamin D. According to a company statement made by Hill’s, this update includes only one new date code that was associated with a SKU that was already included in the previous recall. This new list came from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration announcement made on May 20, 2019.

Here is the latest list of Hill’s Pet Nutrition foods that are affected.

UPDATE: Hill’s Pet Nutrition has announced that it is voluntarily expanding a recall of its canned dog food due to the elevated levels of vitamin D previously found.

The following products and lot numbers are affected. If you have any of these, stop feeding them immediately and return them for a full refund.


Hill’s Pet Nutrition and Science Diet has voluntarily recalled select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.

While vitamin D is essential for dogs, consuming elevated levels can lead to potential health issues such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at extremely high levels, can lead to renal dysfunction.

Pet parents with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed below and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian. In most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.

In the United States, the affected canned dog foods were distributed through retail pet stores and veterinary clinics nationwide. No dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.

Important Message from Hills
Hill’s Pet Nutrition learned of the potential for elevated vitamin D levels in some of our canned dog foods after receiving a complaint in the United States about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels.

Our investigation confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D due to a supplier error.

We care deeply about all pets and are committed to providing pet parents with safe and high quality products.

Hill’s has identified and isolated the error and, to prevent this from happening again, we have required our supplier to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients.

In addition to our existing safety processes, we are adding our own further testing of incoming ingredients.

This voluntary recall only impacts canned dog food and primarily in the United States.

It is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

For further information, please contact Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. at 1-800-445-5777 Monday-Friday during the hours of 9am-5pm (CST) or at contactus@hillspet.com. Information can also be found at www.hillspet.com/productlistdisclaimer icon

Thanks for the info Linda, although I don't use it. From all I've read over the years, Hills Science Diet is junk food, my vet pushed some on me years ago for one of my dogs, but I've never bought the stuff on my own.

hills makes a lot of specialty food for different ailments, its ok to get them "over the hump" but not to feed as a steady diet
