Aflatoxin is a naturally-occurring toxic chemical by-product from the growth of the fungus Aspergillus flavus on corn and other crops. Symptoms include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, yellowish tint to the eyes and/or gums, vomiting and severe, bloody diarrhea.

“If your pet shows signs of any of these symptoms, please bring in your pet immediately,” said Dr. Steven Fox, President and Chief Executive Officer, Central Veterinary Associates, P.C. “Our Valley Stream facility has a hospital that is open around the clock, 365 days a year, with a veterinarian always on duty in our emergency room. We also urge any pet owners who have bought any of these recalled products to return them to the store.”
