Pet food recall, is your pet at risk?
Mars Petcare is recalling a limited number of My Dog Beef & Liver 100g 12-packs due to the potential presence of plastic which entered the food during the production process. The only product affected is batch code 84901WOD51 BEST BEFORE: 06 DEC 2020.
A spokesperson for Mars Petcare said the company has not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product, but believed it was right to recall the product.
“We encourage consumers who have purchased affected product to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange,” the company said in a statement.
“Affected product was distributed to retailers throughout Australia and we are working with them to ensure that the recalled products are removed from the shelf.
“We understand that this recall may be concerning for pet owners, however no other My Dog varieties or batches are affected by the recall, and owners will still be able to find unaffected product on shelf.
The individual trays and the six-pack are not affected. If consumers have disposed of the box and believe their trays came from a 12-pack, they can check the best before date on the side of the tray. If the date stamp is 061220, this tray may be affected and should be discarded or returned to the retailer.
