The recent recall of 22 bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food sold to Dollar General stores in four U.S. states has been expanded to include 55-pound bags sold in Sam’s Club in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this recall is being expanded to Sam’s Club in the U.S. because some of the affected production lot was originally said to be held in inventory but was instead released to consumers, which has necessitated the expansion of the recall. Mars PetCare is confident no other packages or retailers are affected by this recall.
The voluntary recall affects two packages sold in the U.S. only. No other PEDIGREE® products are affected, including any other variety of dry dog food, wet dog food, or dog treats. The affected packages are:
- 55-pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food sold at Sam’s Club will have the lot code 432E1KKM03 printed on the back of the bag near the UPC (23100 10731) and a Best Before date of 8/7/15.
- 15-pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food sold at Dollar General stores will have the lot code 432C1KKM03 printed on the back of the bag near the UPC (23100 10944) and a Best Before date of 8/5/15.
Bags of the affected food may contain small metal fragments, which could have entered the packages during the production process. If you have purchased this product, discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange. There have been no reports of injury or illness associated with the recalled dog food.
