Pedigree has initiated a voluntary recall of 22 bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food due to the possible presence of a foreign material — small metal fragments.
The affected bags were sold in Dollar General stores in four states. While the small metal fragments are not embedded in the food itself, it may present a risk of injury if eaten.
The company said they are already working with Dollar General to ensure that the recalled product is no longer sold and is removed from inventory and shelves.
Only 15 pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food sold at 12 Dollar General stores in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and Louisiana with the production code 432C1KKM03 printed on the back of the bag near the UPC and a Best Before date of 8/5/15 are included in this voluntary recall.
No other PEDIGREE® products are affected, according to the company.
