PetSmart has issued a recall on cans of its Grreat Choice dog food after a manufacturer informed the company of consumer complaints about finding pieces of metal that could cause a choking hazard to pets.
The product is sold nationwide at PetSmart retail stores and online at PetSmart.com, Pet360.com, and PetFoodDirect.com.
The dog food was sold between October 10, 2016 and Feb. 7, 2017 and has a “Best By” date of 8/5/19.
PetSmart said in a press release that only one lot of Grreat Choice chicken and rice dog food is affected by the recall.
No injuries or illnesses have been reported, the company said.
The cans have a lot number of 1759338, and a UPC code of 7-3725726116-7.
Neither the manufacturer or PetSmart have given any indication of how the metal pieces ended up in the food.
Customers who have purchased the recalled food are advised to stop feeding it to their pets and bring any remaining cans to a PetSmart store for a full refund or exchange.
For more information, consumers can contact PetSmart customer service at 1-888-839-9638 between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. CST
