ALERT: How to know if your pet food has been recalled
On Friday Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall of all dry pet food products produced at its plant in Everson, Pa., between Feb. 18 and July 29, citing potential salmonella contamination.
Brands affected include Pedigree, Country Acres, Retriever, Doggy Bag, Members Mark, Natural, Ol’ Roy, Special Kitty, Paws & Claws, Wegman’s, Pet Pride, PMI Nutrition and Red Flannel.
To see if a product you purchased has been recalled, look for “17” as the first two digits of the second
line on the UPC. For Pedigree products, look for “PAE” on the bottom line.
To see whether a product you purchased is subject to recall, you can also check the UPC code against the chart on the Mars Web site.
Pet owners who have questions about the recall should call 1-877-568-4463.
