This is the 3rd pet food recall in Primal Pet Foods’ history, though it is the 1st ever dog food recall for the company (the previous recalls, for cat foods, were in 2015 and 2011).

Matthew R. Koss, the company’s founder and president, released the news in a letter on social media, stating, “As these products do not meet our precise specifications, we are requesting that these specific products and lot codes be returned to the Primal retailer at which the product was originally purchased for full credit.”

Koss said the bone grind size was about 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch above the ideal. He added, “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to you and your pets.”
