More than 60 Omega-3 dog and cat supplements recalled by Stratford


(NEW YORK) — Stratford Care USA, Inc has recalled 62 brands of Omega-3 supplements for cats and dogs over concern for “potentially elevated levels of Vitamin A,” according to a release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration published Friday.

While Vitamin A is an essential nutrient for both cats and dogs, ingesting too much can lead to health issues. The company said the severity of the health issues depend on the level of Vitamin A and the length of exposure, but can result in Vitamin A toxicity. Symptoms “may include general malaise, anorexia, nausea, peeling skin, weakness, tremors, convulsions, paralysis, and death,” the company added.

Action for a voluntary recall was taken “after receiving a single Serious Adverse Event from a sole consumer regarding their dogs’ exhibiting signs of Vitamin A toxicity after consuming the supplement,” the company said, adding that they’re “taking all necessary steps in collaboration with the FDA to remove all products with these lot numbers from the market.”

Pet owners who purchased the supplement are being asked to stop feeding it to pets immediately and throw it away in a container where no other animals can access it.

Supplements were sold in a white plastic container containing 60 soft gels in veterinary clinics, distribution centers, retail stores and online retailers such as Amazon and Chewy. All of the containers recalled are labelled with “lot 31133 EXP 04/13/23” or “lot 30837 EXP 10/26/22,” and sold under the following brand names.
