Mars Recalls Pedigree Dog Food After Finding Metal Fragments

The limited recall affects certain 15-pound bags sold in Dollar General Stores in four states.

On Wednesday (Aug. 27) Mars Petcare US announced a recall of 22 bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products due to the presence of a “foreign material.” 

That foreign material is small metal fragments, which may have gotten in there during some production mishap -- the company isn’t quite sure. It has shut down the production line in that facility to investigate.

Mars says the metal is not embedded in the food, but is loose in the bags, and says it “may present a risk if consumed.”
