Eight dog food brands, including one that is sold in Canada, are being recalled after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned about their potentially deadly levels of vitamin D.

On Monday, the FDA said it found samples of the recalled brand contained as much as 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D.

The Canadian Food inspection agency said that pet production in Canada is not a regulated commodity.
"CFIA does not have recall authority".

Although vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, if too much is ingested it can be dangerous causing death

US Brands affected by the recall include: Ahold Delhaize, ELM Pet Foods Inc., Kroger, Lidl (Orlando brand), ANF Inc., Sunshine Mills Inc., Natural Life Pet Products and Nutrisca.

Sunshine Mills Inc., sells its product in Canada
