Tuffy's Pet Foods is recalling about 1,600 cases of its salmon dog food after the food's manufacturer told Tuffy's the product could contain elevated levels of vitamin D, which can be dangerous to canines. 

The company said Monday that no pet illnesses or deaths have been connected to the Pure Vita Salmon Entrée Dog Food so far, and the food's manufacturer has determined the production error and is working to fix it. The potentially tainted food was sold only in the United States, at retail stores and through other distributors. 

Anyone in possession of the listed salmon food should stop feeding it to their dogs right away. If your dog has consumed some of it, contact your veterinarian. You can also return the food to the retailer where you bought it for a full refund.
