Due to a labelling mistake, Nestlé Purina PetCare Co., a subsidiary of Switzerland-based Nestle, is voluntarily recalling a limited volume of
its Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Low Fat prescription wet dog food.
Nestlé Purina claimed one of its facilities mislabeled Purina ONE True Instinct Tender Cuts In Gravy With Real Turkey & Venison wet dog food as PPVD EN Low Fat on Sept. 15.
"We are initiating this voluntary recall as a precaution," the business added.
The business stated the mislabeled food is safe to give, but it is not meant for dogs requiring a prescription PPVD EN Low Fat diet, who may have allergies to standard diets or trouble digesting fat.
"The mislabeled product has pieces in gravy, whereas the right product appears more like a pate consistency," Nestlé Purina stated.
Nestlé Purina PetCare requested that veterinarian and retail partners remove the implicated product. "We urge that you discard any contaminated goods, and we will replace it as soon as possible."
The mislabeled PPVD EN Low Fat cans have a UPC (38100 17599), manufacture code (22581159 L4TR6), and "Best Before Sept 2024" date on the bottom.
Nestlé Purina apologised to pet owners. We made this decision because we're pet owners and know how vital pet health and well-being are."
