Purina has voluntarily recalled select wet dog food 10-oz. tubs under the Beneful Prepared Meals, Beneful Chopped Blends and Pro Plan Savory Meals brands because they may not contain the recommended level of added vitamins and minerals.
Although most of the recalled product contains all of the vitamins and minerals dogs need, it is recommended that consumers discard any of the affected product they may have, and Purina will issue a refund.
The voluntary recall only includes the following brands with both a “Best Before” date range of June 2017 to August 2017 and production code range starting with the first four digits of 5363 to 6054. See a full list of products here.
No other Purina products or sizes are included.
Dog owners should check the "Best Before" date and production code on the bottom of each 10-oz. tub and contact Purina at +1.800.877.7919 for a refund if they have an affected tub or may have purchased the affected product(s).
The affected items were produced in only one Purina facility on one production line in St. Joseph, Missouri, and were sold in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
