Why recalled? due to the possible presence of foreign material – metal fragments.
- This is the extension of a previous voluntary recall of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products due to the possible presence of a foreign material.
- The voluntary recall still affects 22 bags shipped to Dollar General across four U.S. states.
- The recall now is being expanded to 55-pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products sold in Sam’s Club in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
- 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.
- Bags may contain small metal fragments, which could have entered the packages during the production process. The foreign material is not embedded in the food itself, but may present a risk of injury if consumed.
- Affected product would only have been sold in Dollar General Stores and Sam’s Club in these cities:
Affected 15-pound bags were sold between August 18 and August 30 at Dollar General stores in:
- Baton Rouge
Affected 55-pound bags were sold between August 14 and August 30 at Sam’s Club in:
- Comstock Park
