This recall is related to the Companion canned dog food recall, which was issued because of “foreign material.”

WellPet says it is recalling the products out of an abundance of caution. There were no foreign materials found in Wellness products; however, this line of Wellness canned cat food is manufactured in the same facility as another brand which was just recalled for foreign material (see the Companion recall). The foreign material has not been identified in either recall.
