An issue that was affecting numerous dog food brands in 2018 has expanded in the new year. The Food and Drug Administration’s recall of dry dog foods for potentially dangerous levels of vitamin D now affects 9 different brands and more than 12 different types of food, reports FOX 8. The FDA first issued the recall in early December after the federal agency received complaints about canines experiencing vitamin D toxicity after eating certain dry dog foods.
