Mars Petcare is voluntarily recalling some Cesar Classics Filet Mignon wet dog food products because small pieces of plastic that may have entered the food during the production process could be a choking hazard.
“While a small number of consumers have reported finding the plastic pieces, we have not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product,” Mars Petcare said in a notice of the recall.
A limited number of both individual and variety packs of Cesar Classics Filet Mignon dog food has been recalled.
The individual products have a best before date (“BB”) between 08/04/2018 and 08/05/2018 printed on the side, and a lot code below it that begins with 631FKKC or 631GKKC.
The recalled variety packs have the following lot codes: 632D14JC, 633B24JC, 634A14JC, 634A24JC, 634B14JC, 634B24JC, 634E14JC, 635A24JC, 635B14JC, 636D24JC and 636E14JC.
If you purchased the recalled product, do not feed it to your pet. Discard it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange.
“At Mars Petcare, we take our responsibility to pets and their owners seriously and are working with all of our distributors and retail customers to ensure the recalled products are no longer sold and are removed from inventory,” the company stated.
