Recall: WellPet Issues Voluntary Recall of Products

March 18, 2017

WellPet has issued a voluntary recall of a Wellness Beef Topper for dogs, saying a small amount of  one recipe has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone. The following is the only affected product:

Recalled Product Details:
• Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs – 13.2 oz
• Best-By Dates of 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19, located on the bottom of the can.

Elevated levels of the thyroid hormone can affect a dog’s metabolism and increase thirst, frequency of urination, restless behavior and weight loss. No reports have been received by the company of any dogs affected by this problem.

If you have purchased any of the cans of the specific product listed above, return it to your place of purchase for a refund. You may also call the company at 877-227-9587 for more information.

Because this product is used as supplemental feeding only, it is unlikely a dog would be harmed should he consume the food with elevated hormone levels, but the company is issuing the recall out of precaution.
