Pedigree Recalls Dog Food For Object Contamination

Pedigree Recall 2012

Pedigree Dog Food has voluntarily recalled some lots of dog food due to contamination by foreign objects.


Durng production, small pieces of blue plastic broke off a conveyor belt. While the facility has now replaced the broken production part, these pieces of plastic may have been included in some cans of Pedigree dog food. This creates a choking hazard.


The foods affected by this recall are 3 varieties of canned weight loss management formula. The specific foods recalled are:

If you have cans of these foods, check the lot codes and best before dates to know if your particular can is affected. Recalled cans will have lot codes that begin with 209, 210, 211, or 212. They will also have a best before date between 2/24/14 and 3/23/14.
