Dog Food Recall – Pedigree

Just received this in my e-mail and thought I would share :

 

Franklin, Tennessee – On Saturday, June 30, 2012, Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary dog food recall of a limited number of three varieties of Pedigree weight management canned products due to a potential choking risk.

Affected product may contain small pieces of blue plastic — which entered the food during the production process.

The source of the plastic has been identified and the issue resolved.

Consumers who have purchased affected product are advised to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund.

While a small number of consumers have reported finding the plastic pieces, the company claims it has not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product.

The lot codes indicated below should not be sold or consumed.

Affected product was distributed to retail customers throughout the United States. Mars Petcare US is working with its distributors and retail customers to ensure the recalled products are no longer sold and are removed from inventory.

Which Pedigree Dog Foods Are Recalled?

Only Pedigree weight management canned dog food varieties with the production codes shown below are included in this voluntary recall.

Each product will have a lot code printed on the end of the can that begins with 209, 210, 211 or 212 and a Best Before date that falls between 2/24/2014 and 3/23/2014.

No other Pedigree products are affected, including any other variety of wet food, dry dog food, or dog treats.

What to Do?

For questions or more information, the company invites consumers to call 877-720-3335 from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM CST.

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

  1. Phew! Thank goodness it’s not the dry food! When I saw the title of the post I was like, “oh no! I hope it’s not salmonella!” I feed Dixie Large Breed Pedigree, the dry kind. Thanks for sharing!
