Mars Petcare UK is recalling several of its dog food products because they may contain high levels of vitamin D which exceed the maximum permitted intake.
Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death. Pet owners whose dogs have been eating the recalled brands and are showing these symptoms should contact their veterinarians.
Recalled products include select batches of:

I feed my dog crappie tinned wet food, am I right in assuming that the wet tinned does not apply?
That is correct. Only the dry dog foods are involved in this recall.
