Purina recalls some Pro Plan Rx dog foods for label error

One can identify the mislabeled product by the UPC (38100 17599), production code (22581159 L4TR6) and “Best Before Sept 2024” date on the bottom of each PPVD EN Low Fat can.

Nestlé Purina PetCare voluntarily recalled a limited amount of a prescription wet dog food, Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Low Fat (PPVD EN Low Fat) in 13.4 ounce cans due to a labeling error, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. For a brief period on September 15, 2022, cans of a different complete and balanced adult dog food, Purina ONE True Instinct Tender Cuts In Gravy With Real Turkey & Venison wet dog food, were labeled as PPVD EN Low Fat in one of our factories. The mislabeled diet is safe to feed, but it is not the intended formula for dogs requiring a prescription PPVD EN Low Fat diet, who may have sensitivities to traditional diets or difficulty digesting fat.

Purina PetCare became aware of the issue after being contacted by several pet owners who observed the texture of food in their PPVD EN Low Fat cans was not the same as previous meals. The mislabeled product contains chunks in gravy, while the correct product looks more like a pate consistency.

Purina PetCare has not received any reports to date of illness or injury to dogs fed this mislabeled product. The affected product was available by prescription only and distributed through veterinary clinics and other retailers with the ability to validate a prescription. Purina PetCare asked our veterinary and other retail partners to remove the affected product. We also recommend that you discard any of the affected product you may have, and we will replace it as quickly as possible.

One can identify the mislabeled product by the UPC (38100 17599), production code (22581159 L4TR6) and “Best Before Sept 2024” date on the bottom of each PPVD EN Low Fat can.

No other Purina products are impacted by this voluntary recall.
