Six varieties of dog food have been recalled because they may contain toxic levels of mold. The affected products include de-boned chicken and rice sold under names of Triumph, Evolve, Wild Harvest, Nurture Farms, Pure Being and Elm. The products have all been made by Sunshine Mills and have a “best-by-date” of February 11, 2022.

According to the FDA site, Sunshine Mills, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of the products due to elevated levels of Aflatoxin above the acceptable limit. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.

No illnesses have been reported in association with these products to date, and no other Sunshine Mills, Inc. pet food products are affected by this announcement.

Unused food can be returned for a full refund.

The products were sent to Chewy, Walmart, Amazon and other retail stores.

The FDA says aflatoxin exposure many lead to any of the following symptoms:

“Sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice, unexplained bruising or bleeding, and/or diarrhea. In some cases, aflatoxins can affect blood clotting and cause long term liver damage without showing any signs in the early stages of aflatoxin poisoning and if the continue eating contaminated food, they may die suddenly.”

Customers may contact Sunshine Mills, Inc. at 800.705.2111 or email at customer.service@sunshinemills.com for more information.
