Wet Noses Natural Dog Treat Company announced Friday that it's recalling roughly 51,000 packages of its Simply Nourish frozen dog food because it contains high levels of vitamin D. 

The food was sold at PetSmart stores across the country, the company said in a news release published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. No illnesses have been linked to the food so far, though anyone with the food at home should stop feeding it to their dogs immediately.

Dogs who consume too much vitamin D could experience vomiting, weight loss, excessive drooling, and increased thirst and urination, Wet Noses says. If a dog takes in too much vitamin D over an extended time, he can develop kidney dysfunction and other serious issues. 

The Washington-based company says routine testing discovered the elevated vitamin D levels. Wet Noses blames its vitamin mix manufacturer that reduced its "vitamin mix dosage" and failed to properly communicate the change, the news release says. Because of that Wet Noses didn't alter its vitamin mix dosage, resulting in too much vitamin D. 

Wet Noses encourages anyone who bought the food to return it to where it was bought for a refund. People with questions can call the company at (1-800) 938-6673.
