On February 2, 2012, Advanced Animal Nutrition updated a voluntary recall bulletin with the FDA regarding several brands of dog food. The recall notice was originally distributed on December 8, 2011.
A recall has been issued for the following 50-pound bags of Advanced Animal Nutrition Dog Food:
- Dog Power Hunters Formula 27-14
- Dog Power Adult Maintenance Formula 21-12

The updated alert has expanded the lot numbers of potentially contaminated food. Any of the above dog foods purchased with these lot numbers should not be consumed by animals. The affected lot numbers are as follows:
- K0004 through K1322
- 4K1004 through 4K1322
If animals have consumed any of the products, it is wise to keep a sample of the food to bring with you to the vetís office in the event animals become symptomatic. Animals who have consumed any of these food resources and display symptoms that include sluggish or lethargic behavior, an unwillingness to eat, heavy vomiting, a yellowish tint in the eyes or on the gums, or persistent diarrhea should be taken to a veterinarian immediately along with an undigested food sample.
Advanced Animal Nutrition is manufactured in Thayer, Missouri off Old Highway 63 South. The states most likely affected are Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana. However, if you live outside the states of primary concern and use Advance Animal Nutrition you should still check the brand name, lot numbers, and date stamp and return the food for a refund.
