PetSmart has issued a voluntary recall of one production lot of its Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food sold on PetSmart.com, Pet360.com, PetFoodDirect.com and in nationwide PetSmart retail stores, according to a press release from the company that was also published by the FDA. This product is being voluntarily recalled as a precautionary measure due to metal contamination that could potentially be a choking hazard to pets.
The recall was initiated after receiving notification from the manufacturer of consumer complaints. At the time of the announcement, which was made February 9, 2017, PetSmart had not received any consumer complaints.
The recalled products include the following Grreat Choice dog food sold between Oct. 10, 2016 and Feb. 7, 2017:
|Product Name||UPC||Best By Date or Lot Code|
|Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food with Chicken & Rice Classic Ground, 13.2 oz. cans||
The Best By date is found on the bottom of the can.
As of Thursday of last week, no other Grreat Choice products were impacted by this issue, and PetSmart was not aware of any reported cases of illness or injury related to this product.
Customers who purchased the recalled food should stop feeding it to their pets and bring any remaining cans to their local PetSmart store for a full refund or exchange.
