Dog food recalled yet again over aflatoxin risk: The new details

Sunshine Mills has announced another dog food recall over potential contamination with aflatoxin, a naturally occurring toxin that results from the growth of a mold called Aspergillus flavus. According to the latest recall notice, the levels of aflatoxin in these products may exceed the acceptable limits, potentially putting dogs at risk if too much of the toxin is consumed.
