Mars Petcare US Extends Voluntary Recall To Additional Bags Of PEDIGREE® Brand Adult Complete Nutrition For Dogs Sold At Sam's Club

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Aug. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Mars Petcare US announced 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 12 stores in four U.S. states, but it 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. We are confident no other packages or retailers are affected by this recall.

The 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.  We encourage consumers who have purchased affected product to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange. We have not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product. The lot codes indicated below should not be sold or consumed.

Mars Petcare US is working with both Sam's Club and Dollar General to ensure that the recalled products are no longer sold and are removed from inventory.  The facility production line where this product was produced for both retailers continues to be shut down until this issue is resolved.

Recalled Pet Food 
This voluntary recall affects two packages sold in the United States only.  No other PEDIGREE® products are affected, including any other variety of dry dog food, wet dog food or dog treats. The affected packages are:

  • 55-pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food sold at Sam's Club in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio with the production code shown below only. The 55-pound bags will have a lot code printed on the back of the bag near the UPC code that reads 432E1KKM03 and a Best Before date of 8/7/15.
