Has There Ever Been a Grreat Choice Recall?

There have been multiple Grreat Choice recalls initiated by PetSmart, according to our research.

In early 2017, a Grreat Choice recall was issued due to potential metal contamination in their canned dog food, though there were no reports of affected dogs. Another significant Grreat Choice recall occurred in 2009 when PetSmart recalled several dog biscuit products linked to a salmonella concern from a supplier. Additionally, in 2007, the Grreat Choice brand was involved in a large-scale recall related to Menu Foods and melamine contamination, affecting various pet food brands.
