Hy-Vee stores across the Tri-States recall dog food

Hy-Vee says it's recalling some bags of Hy-Vee dog food that might contain a toxin commonly found in corn.
The Iowa-based company says tests conducted by the Iowa Department of Agriculture indicated higher-than-normal levels of aflatoxin in some samples of the dog food made at a Kansas City plant operated by Pro-Pet, LLC.
Aflatoxins are chemicals produced by fungi on corn that can sicken pets. Symptoms include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums and diarrhea.
The recalled products carry three different "Best By" dates and were distributed to Hy-Vee stores in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri, amongst other between Oct. 26 and Jan. 11.
