Cargill announced a recall today of the 40 and 50 pound bags of marksman and River Run dog food products. According to a statement by Cargill, the recall is a precautionary measure due to the detection of unacceptably high levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is a natural byproduct of mold. The company is advising consumers to have River-Run-Dog-Foodtheir pets seen by a veterinarian if they display sluggishness and lethargy, along with a reluctance to eat, are vomiting, have diarrhea, or have a yellowish tint to their eyes and gums. At this point no reports of ill animals have been received by Cargill.
