A nationally sold online pet food brand has been recalled by the FDA after a number of dogs became ill or died.

Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc., has issued a voluntary recall of a number of Sportmix dog and cat food products. Testing of the food indicated that there were levels of aflatoxin that exceeded acceptable limits.

Some of these products have been distributed nationally to online distributors and retail stores.

At least 28 dogs have died and eight more have fallen ill after eating products made by Midwestern Pet Food Inc., according to ABC 27 News.

Some of the symptoms of aflatoxin poisoning include sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice (yellowish tinge of the eyes, gums, or skin due to liver damage), or diarrhea.

“Do not give the recalled products to your pets or any other animal,” says the recall. “Destroy products so that children, pets and wildlife cannot access them. Wash and sanitize pet food storage bowls, cups, and containers.
