SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Schubert Jonckheer & Kolbe LLP announces its filing of a class action lawsuit

against Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc. for selling dog food containing excessive and dangerous amounts of vitamin D.

Hill's manufactures and sells dog food under Hill's Prescription Diet and Hill's Science Diet labels. Although Hill's advertises

that its dog food contains precisely balanced nutrition and is subject to stringent quality control standards, on January 31, 2019, the company recalled certain of its canned dog food, which contained excessive and dangerous amounts of Vitamin D. Canine consumption of excessive amounts of vitamin D can lead to serious health issues, including vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, weight loss, and joint issues. Prolonged and high exposure can lead to calcification of soft tissues such as kidneys, renal dysfunction, and cause death. For a list of the recalled products, please visit http://classactionlawyers.com/hills.

The lawsuit, filed on February 12, 2019 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, seeks monetary damages and injunctive relief to prevent Hill's from selling pet food with dangerous levels of vitamin D.
