Dog food maker issues recall

Pet food manufacturer Purina has issued a recall for a number of tubs of dog food, because the product does not meet quality standards.

The recall includes Beneful and Pro Plan wet dog food products.

Through Purina’s own testing, the company discovered that the food may not contain the recommended level of added vitamins and minerals.

The recall includes the three aforementioned brands with a “best before” date range of June 2017 to August 2017, and production codes with the first four digits of 5365 through 6054.

The affected products are all varieties of Beneful prepared meals wet dog food 10 ounce tubs, all varieties of Beneful chopped blends wet dog food 10 ounce tubs, and five varieties of Pro Plan Savory Meals wet dog food tubs. The recall does not include any other Purina products or sizes.

Dog owners should check both the “best before” dates and the production codes on the bottom of all 10 ounce tubs of the recalled products.

According to Foster’s Food Fair, customers who have purchased the products from its stores are encouraged to return them for a full refund.
