KENT ­— Addiction Foods, a Kent-based pet-food company, says it is recalling 355 cases of its canned dog foods after testing showed elevated levels of Vitamin A and a slight variance in calcium / phosphorous ratios.

The company, whose food is manufactured at its plant in New Zealand, says the cans were shipped to distributors and online retailers between Feb. 11 and March 19 and include:

Addiction New Zealand Brushtail and Vegetables Canned Dog Food Entrée; size 13.8oz/390g; UPC code 8 885004 070028; lot number 8940:02Dec2018; expiration date December 2018. Recalled: 8 case.

Addiction New Zealand Venison and Apples Canned Dog Food Entrée; size 13.8oz/390g; UPC code: 8 885004 070462; lot number 8936:01Dec2018; expiration date December 2018. Recalled: 347 cases.

The company says there have been no reports of animal illnesses, and no other products were affected by the recall.

It says exposure to excessive Vitamin A levels for an extended period of time may cause health problems in young, growing animals. If dogs were fed these products exclusively for 60 days, owners could notice a decrease in appetite.

Consumers are asked to discontinue use of the product, and unused cans may be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers may contact the company at 425-251-0330 or via email at info@addictionfoods.com.
