Blue Buffalo issues third dog food recall in 2 months

A dog food product sold nationwide is being recalled due to a potential health risk.

The company says the recalled product is Blue Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food.

One major dog food company voluntarily is recalling one product over potentially high levels of a beef thyroid hormone.

Elevated levels may affect a dog's metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst and urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss, according to Blue Buffalo and WellPet. If the dog continues to eat the affected food, symptoms could increase. While symptoms sometimes go away when they stop eating the food, prolonged eating can cause problems that include vomiting, diarrhea and difficulty breathing.

The FDA says it has taken one report of a dog showing symptoms.

"If your pet has consumed the product listed above and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian", the company said in a statement. The dog is now fully recovered. Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation, however, and after working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it would be prudent to recall the one production lot in question.
