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.
