Hy-Vee has issued a recall for some of its dog food products.  In a press release Hy-Vee said routine testing identified higher-than-normal levels of the contaminant aflatoxin in select products.

Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring by-product but it can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.
