 The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC)  has been informed that USFDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about certain Sport mix pet food products manufactured by Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. in their Oklahoma plant that may contain potentially fatal levels of aflatoxins. 

The report reveals that more than 70 pets have died and more than 80 pets that are sick after eating Sport mix pet food. 

Aflatoxins are produced by the mold Aspergillus flavus, which can grow on corn and other grains used as ingredients in pet food. At high levels, aflatoxins can cause illness and death in pets.

Pets experiencing aflatoxin poisoning may have symptoms such as sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice (yellowish tint to the eyes or gums due to liver damage), and/or diarrhea. In severe cases, this toxicity can be fatal. In some cases, pets may suffer liver damage but not show any symptoms
