Mars Petcare US has announced a voluntary recall of some bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food because they may contain small metal fragments.
According to a recall notice, the fragments may have entered bags during the production process at a manufacturing facility, which has temporarily been shut down.
The 22 recalled 15-pound bags have a lot code (located on the back of the bag) of 432C1KKM03 and a Best Before date of 8/5/15.
They were sold from August 18-25 at the following Dollar General store locations:
- Arkansas: Perryville and Cabot
- Louisiana: Baton Rouge; Calhoun; Hineston; Jonesville; Pineville; and Slaughter
- Mississippi: Magnolia and Vicksburg
- Tennessee: Memphis
“While the small metal fragments are not embedded in the food itself, it may present a risk of injury if consumed,” Mars Petcare stated. “We are working with Dollar General to ensure that the recalled product is no longer sold and is removed from inventory.”
