Has Retriever Dog Food Ever Been Recalled?

Yes, twice. In October 2023, certain bags of Retriever All Life Stages Mini Chunk Chicken Recipe Dry Dog Food were recalled due to potential salmonella contamination. Also, years earlier, in September 2008, Retriever was part of a Mars Petcare manufacturing recall involving possible salmonella contamination in its Pennsylvania plant.
