August 26, 2014 – Mars Petcare US has announced a voluntary recall of 22 bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food due to the possible presence of a foreign material.
The affected bags were sold in Dollar General stores in four states.
Although the small metal fragments are not embedded in the food itself, they may present a risk of injury if consumed.
The company is working with Dollar General to ensure that the recalled product is no longer sold and is removed from inventory.
Only 15 pound bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food with the production code detailed below were sold at 12 Dollar General stores in the following four states:
Each product will have the lot code 432C1KKM03 printed on the back of the bag near the UPC and a Best Before date of 8/5/15.
No other Pedigree products are affected, including any other variety of dry dog food, wet dog food or dog treats.
