Pet food manufacturer Mars Petcare U.S. is voluntarily recalling a limited range of three varieties of Pedigree brand wet dog food due to a potential choking risk.
The recalled dog food varieties include, Pedigree + Healthy Weight Premium Ground Entree in Meaty Juices; Pedigree Weight Management Meaty Ground Dinner Beef & Liver Dinner in Meaty Juices and Pedigree Weight Management Meaty Ground Dinner Chicken & Rice Dinner in Meaty Juices. The products, which have a best before date that falls between 2/24/2014 and 3/23/2014, were distributed to retail customers throughout the United States.
According to Mars Petcare, the 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.
Though a few consumers have reported finding the plastic pieces, so far there have been no reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product, says the company.
