purina-dog-food-recall-2016Maker: Nestlé Purina PetCare
Cause: Inadequate vitamins and minerals
Announcement: Company news release dated March 10, 2016
What was recalled: The following wet dog food brands with both a “Best Before” date range of June 2017 to August 2017 and production code range starting with the first 4 digits of 5363 to 6054:

  • Beneful Prepared Meals, 10 oz. tubs (all varieties)
  • Beneful Chopped Blends, 10 oz. tubs (all varieties)
  • Pro Plan Savory Meals, 10 oz. tubs (limited to 5 varieties: Braised Chicken Entrée, Braised Pork Entrée, Braised Turkey Entrée, Grilled Salmon Entrée, Braised Beef & Rice Entrée)

According to the company, “We discovered through our own internal quality tests that some 10-oz. wet dog food tubs may not contain the recommended level of added vitamins and minerals, so we took action and issued a voluntary recall of the product at retail.”

“The affected items were produced in only one Purina facility on one production line in St. Joseph, Missouri, and were sold in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico,” the company noted, adding: “We’re working to get these products back on store shelves as soon as we possibly can.”
