Hopefully none our readers are still feeding processed pet foods but just in case or in case you know someone who is, here’s the scoop:
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.
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.
