Massachusetts-based dog food company Wellness Dog Food issued a limited, voluntary recall for one of its canned dog foods Saturday.

Following a scare of elevated levels of naturally occurring levels of beef thyroid hormones, Wellness Dog Foods issued the voluntary recall. Per Dog Food Advisor, elevated levels of thyroid hormone could potentially affect a dog's metabolism and cause increased thirst, restless behavior, and weight loss.
