Iowa-based Hy-Vee recalls some of its store-brand dog food

Author:

Iowa-based grocery story chain Hy-Vee has issued a recall of some bags of its Hy-Vee-brand dog food because it may contain a toxin commonly found in corn, The Associated Press reports.

The dog food was distributed to Hy-Vee stores in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota and four other states in the Midwest between Oct. 26 and Jan. 11. The voluntarily-recalled products carry three different "Best By" dates.

More information is available on the Hy-Vee website.

According to The AP, the toxins -- specifically known as Aflatoxins -- are chemicals produced by fungi on corn, which can make pets ill.

Symptoms to watch for include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a loss of appetite.

Other symptoms include vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, and diarrhea.
