Mars Petcare dog food recalled

pet food recalls

Stop & Shop supermarkets are removing a popular brand of dog food from store shelves, fearing plastic contamination could choke pets, according to a news release from the supermarket chain.

Stop & Shop removed the food after Mars Petcare issued a voluntarily recall of its Cesar Classics Filet Mignon Flavor wet dog food. According to the pet food maker, small pieces of white plastic contaminated some of the supply during production. Customers are encouraged to throw away the dog food or return it to their retailer for a refund.

“While a small number of consumers have reported finding the plastic pieces, we have not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product,” the company said in its statement.

Other Cesar products are safe for pets to consume, according to the company.

Pet owners with questions should call Mars Petcare at 800-421-6456. Stop & Shop customers can call 800-767-7772 for information.

If your pet is showing any signs of illness, please do not hesitate to contact us.
