The FDA announced a recall of several brands of dog food produced at Sunshine Mills due to unsafe level of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by mold and can cause illness and even death in dogs.

Pets are highly susceptible to aflatoxin poisoning because, unlike people, who eat a varied diet, pets generally eat the same food continuously over extended periods of time. If a pet’s food contains aflatoxin, the toxin could accumulate in the pet’s system as they continue to eat the same food.

The FDA wants to get the word out to the public about these unsafe products that may still be in pet owners’ homes.

Here is the list of products included in this recall.

  • Champ Mini Chunk Dog Food Beef and Chicken Flavor, 12 lb. bags,
