Recall: A Blue Wilderness Product Is Voluntarily Pulled

March 18, 2017

Pet Food Recall


In a press release yesterday, March 17, 2017, Blue Buffalo issued a voluntary recall for one production lot of Blue Wilderness® Rocky Mountain Recipe™ Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs.  There is the potential for this product to contain elevated levels of naturally-occurring beef thyroid hormones.

Dogs that ingest high levels of the hormone could exhibit symptoms of excessive urination, increased thirst, excessive heart rate, weight loss and restlessness. If the animal stops eating the affected food, the symptoms may abate. But with prolonged use, the symptoms could increase and worsen and include vomiting, diarrhea, and breathing difficulties. Contact your veterinarian at once, if  your pet displays such symptoms.

Although Blue Buffalo has not received any complaints of dogs suffering problems from eating this food, the FDA did advise the company of one consumer who reported symptoms in a dog.  The dog recovered. Blue Buffalo decided to issue the voluntary recall of the following:

The affected products were distributed nationally to pet food retailers, as well as online.

If your pet consumed any of the products listed above, discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian immediately. If you have questions, contact Blue Buffalo at 866-201-9072 between 8-5, Eastern Time, Monday – Friday. You may return any unused product to  your place of purchase.
