Sainsbury’s recalls range of pet food pouches


Sainsbury's is recalling a selection of its own brand cat and dog food because the products may contain high levels of vitamin D which could make pets ill.


High levels of vitamin D fed to a pet over a long period with excessive levels of vitamin D, can cause lethargy, stiffness, vomiting, diarrhoea or excessive urination.


Notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling these products.


These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought any of the products.


The company will also be contacting customers who have bought the affected products wherever possible.


Sainsbury's stated:


"We have identified that some batches of our pet food pouch range have higher than specified levels of vitamin D that should not be consumed over long periods of time.

"We are asking customers who have bought any of the above products not to use it and to return them to their nearest Sainsbury’s store where they will receive a full refund.

"No other products are affected by this issue, and we apologise for the inconvenience this has caused."
