Multiple brands - see link. Usually these recalls seem to be for raw dog food products, but this one is for dry dog food. Some sold through KS.

More info:

"Testing found that samples of the affected foods contained as much as 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D.
Veterinarians should be aware that vitamin D toxicity may present as hypercalcemia, similar to dogs that have consumed a rodent killer.
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."

It's hard to keep up with these, there are so many recalled!

I wonder what brands, if any, have not been recalled. I would like to change my dogs' food, but I am almost afraid to.
