Lot codes are located at the back of the bag at the bottom center on the three-pound bags and in the center of the back of the 28-pound bags. The 40 pounds have lot number that can be found at the bottom right of the back of the package.

The recalled lots codes were distributed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, according to the company.

ELM Pet Foods is urging consumers that have purchased the recalled dog food to stop feeding it to their dogs immediately. They should dispose of the dog food or return it to the retailer where they purchased it for a full refund. A full refund can also be obtained by calling the company at 1-800-705-2111. Consumers with questions can call ELM Pet Foods from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Emails to the company can be sent to customerservice@elmpetfoods.com.

Elevated levels of vitamin D can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss in dogs. It can also lead to more serious health issues including renal failure. Contact a veterinarian if your dog is displaying any of these symptoms.

No other ELM Pet Foods products were affected by the recall, the company said.
