No other products or lots were recalled. The problem occurred only with the products that contained rice. Although rice is a food suitable for dogs, rice high in aflatoxin is not.
Aflatoxin is produced by a natural fungus usually found in wheat, rice, and other grains.
Although lower aflatoxin levels are not dangerous, prolonged exposure or higher quantities can cause serious harm to animals.
