According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, dogs who eat high levels of beef thyroid hormone may show symptoms of increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

If there is prolonged consumption, these symptoms may increase in severity and include vomiting, diarrhea and rapid or labored breathing. If these symptoms occur, the FDA recommends pet owners contact their veterinarian immediately.

According to the FDA, it informed Smucker of three illness reports and immediately initiated a voluntary recall of the limited, impacted production.

Consumers who have bought the specific lots listed above should stop feeding it to their dogs.

If you have questions or would like to receive a refund or coupon for a replacement product, you can call 1-888-569-6767, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.

According to the FDA, no other Milo's Kitchen dog treats, or any other product manufactured by the J.M. Smucker Company, are impacted.
