On February 9, PetSmart issued a voluntary recall of one production lot of its Grreat Choice® Adult Dog Food sold on PetSmart.com, Pet360.com, PetFoodDirect.com and in nationwide PetSmart retail stores. According to a release from the retailer, the production lot is being recalled as a precautionary measure due to metal contamination that could potentially be a choking hazard to pets.
The recalled products include the following Grreat Choice dog food sold between Oct. 10, 2016 and Feb. 7, 2017:
Product Name: Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food with Chicken & Rice Classic Ground, 13.2 oz. cans
Best By Date or Lot Code: 8/5/19 – (Lot Code) 1759338
(Note, consumers can find the Best Buy date on the bottom of the can)
According to PetSmart, this is the only production lot impacted by the recall – no other Grreat Choice products have been impacted and to the company’s knowledge, there are no reported injuries or illnesses which have been reported because of this potential contamination.
Customers who purchased the recalled food should stop feeding it to their pets and bring any remaining cans to their local PetSmart store for a full refund or exchange. For more information about the voluntary recall or if customers have any questions, contact PetSmart Customer Service at 1-888-839-9638 between 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. CST.
