La FDA espande il richiamo del cibo per cani Sportmix dopo 70 i cani sarebbero morti

Il Food and Drug Administration has expanded a recall and is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals su livelli elevati di aflatossina in alcuni alimenti per animali domestici dopo 70 i cani sarebbero morti e oltre 80 altri erano ammalati.

The dog food in question has been identified as certain Sportmix products manufactured by Midwestern Pet Foods. The products were voluntarily recalled by the company on December 30, 2020, but Midwestern Pet Foods expanded the recall to include additional products that contain corn and were made in their Oklahoma manufacturing plant on Tuesday, secondo la FDA.
The impacted products have and expiration date on or before July 9, 2022, and have “05” in the date or lot code.
L'aflatossina è prodotta dalla muffa Aspergillus flavus, ha detto la FDA. Può crescere sui cereali usati come ingredienti nel cibo per animali domestici, e quando vengono consumati alti livelli di aflatossina, può causare malattie o morte negli animali domestici.
Pets poisoned by aflatoxin can display symptoms that include sluggishness, ittero — una tinta giallastra negli occhi o nelle gengive causata da danni al fegato — perdita di appetito, vomito o diarrea, secondo la FDA.
Anche se un animale domestico non mostra alcun sintomo di avvelenamento da aflatossine, la FDA raccomanda che i proprietari di animali domestici che hanno animali domestici che hanno mangiato i prodotti interessati contattino il loro veterinario — poiché può causare danni al fegato a lungo termine.
Mentre la FDA afferma che non ci sono prove che i proprietari di animali domestici che hanno maneggiato il cibo interessato siano a rischio di avvelenamento da aflatossine, it recommends that they always wash their hands after handling pet food.
The following foods added to the original recall are as follows, but the FDA says there are over 1000 affected lot codes so they are not listed individually:
