As pet parents, we too find pet food recalls to be scary, so we want to assure you that Halo is not affected by the recent recall in which several pet foods have been found to have unsafe levels of vitamin D. According to fda.gov, “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating the presence of elevated, potentially toxic levels of vitamin D in several dry pet foods.”
In pet food, vitamin D needs to be added as a supplement. Vitamin D is an important part of your pet’s diet, but it can be dangerous if the level of vitamin D is too high.
The pet foods that are affected by these recent recalls are from two specific manufacturing facilities. Halo does not use either of them. Plus, Halo routinely tests the nutritional content of our cat food and dog food, and to date we have not found any nutritional values—including vitamin D—to be different from what is printed on our label.
