On September 2, 2020, Sunshine Mills recalled certain pet food products after a retail product sample was found by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture & Forestry to contain an unsafe aflatoxin level. Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by the mold Aspergillus flavus, and at high levels, it can cause illness and death in pets. The toxin can be present even if there is no visible mold. On October 8, Sunshine Mills expanded the recall to include additional products. The affected products were distributed to retailers nationwide within the United States. Principle Super Premium Natural Dog Food is exported exclusively to a distributor in Japan. Sportsman’s Pride Maintenance Adult Formula Dog Food is also exported to a distributor in Japan and Colombia.@ https://www.fda.gov/animal-veterinary/outbreaks-and-advisories/fda-alert-certain-lots-pet-food-multiple-brands-recalled-aflatoxin?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
