The Blue Buffalo Company has issued a voluntary recall of one of it's products amid concern high levels of a beef thyroid hormone could be in the food.

The Connecticut-based company recalled its Blue Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs due to its potential elevated levels of beef thyroid hormones, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Friday. If these symptoms occur, owners are encouraged to contact a veterinarian immediately. While symptoms sometimes go away when they stop eating the food, prolonged eating can cause problems that include vomiting, diarrhea and difficulty breathing.

The product contains the UPC code of 840243101153 and has a best buy date of June 7, 2019, which can be found on the bottom of the can.

Eric Trump and wife Lara are expecting first child in September
Lara says she's not nervous about becoming a mom for the first time: "I knew I always wanted kids someday", she says. And now, their challenge is to come up with a name.

There has been one dog who had symptoms but has fully recovered.

Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and on-line retailers.

The FDA advises that if your pet has eaten this recalled food, and has shown any of the listed symptoms, you should contact your veterinarian. Consumers who purchased the product should dispose of it or return it to the store where it was purchased for full refund. Because the recipe is a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only, the company says the likelihood of a dog being affected is remote.
