On Tuesday August 26 Pedigree released a voluntary notice of a recall of 22 bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food because of “the possible presence of a foreign material.” Pedigree knows that the affected bags were only 15 pound bags sold in Dollar General stores in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Louisiana. Pedigree believes that there are “small metal fragments” that may “present a risk of injury if consumed.” However they claim the metal fragments are not “embedded in the food itself.” They are working with Dollar General to get the bags removed from inventory to ensure they are not sold to consumers.
If you have purchased a 15 pound bag of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food from a Dollar General in any of those four states, you can examine the bag to see if yours is one included in the recall. Affected bags have the lot code “432C1KKM03″ printed on the back near the UPC code (23100 10944) and “Best Before 8/5/15″ date.
Pedigree says that no other dog food bags are affected by this recall. If you have any friends or family with dogs that might be affected by this recall, please help by sharing this post via social media so as many people are informed of this as possible.
