Summary by USRecalls.org

Mars Petcare US has issued a voluntary recall of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products because they may contain small metal fragments, which could have entered the packages during the production process. Though the fragments are not imbedded in the food itself it can cause injury if consumed. The voluntary recall affects 22 bags shipped to Dollar General in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee, as well as 55-pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products sold in Sam's Club in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.

FDA Official Description

Voluntary recall of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products due to the possible presence of a foreign material. The voluntary recall still affects 22 bags shipped to Dollar General across four U.S. states, but it now is being expanded to 55-pound bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products sold in Sam's Club in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.

This recall is being expanded to Sam's Club in the U.S. because some of the affected production lot was originally said to be held in inventory but was instead released to consumers, which has necessitated the expansion of the recall. We are confident no other packages or retailers are affected by this recall.

Bags may contain small metal fragments, which could have entered the packages during the production process. The foreign material is not embedded in the food itself, but may present a risk of injury if consumed.
