Aflatoxin is a naturally-occurring toxic chemical by-product from the growth of the fungus Aspergillus flavus on corn and other crops. If your pet shows any symptoms of illness, including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, yellowish tint to the eyes and/or gums, and severe or bloody diarrhea, please consult your veterinarian immediately.

The safety of our customers and their pets is important to Kroger. The company is using its Customer Recall Notification system to alert customers who may have purchased these recalled products through register receipt tape messages and automated phone calls. Customers who have purchased a recalled item should not use it and should return it to a store for a full refund or replacement.

Customers who have questions about this recall may contact Kroger toll-free at (800) 632-6900. For more information, please visit www.kroger.com/recalls.

Aflatoxin contamination is a serious recall. The Kroger Customer Service number provided in the release was not open on the weekend; I do not know the actual manufacturer of these pet foods. The concern is the co-packing manufacturer using the same aflatoxin contaminated ingredients in other foods not yet recalled. Please be cautious of pet food/treats made with corn, wheat, or soy.

Wishing you and your pet the best,

I'm on an email list for a vet I used once, and they are using the Kroger recall as a way to get business: "See us if your pet develops any symptoms from eating..."
