Food Safety News reports that Mars Petcare has issued a voluntary recall of select containers of Cesar Classics Filet Mignon Flavor after a handful of consumers reported finding small pieces of plastic in the food. The food is available in individual trays and variety packs.
The affected products have a lot code printed on the side of the trays that begins with 631FKKC or 631GKKC and best-before date between 08/04/18 and 08/05/18.
The containers found in variety packs have the following lot codes: 632D14JC, 633B24JC, 634A14JC, 634A24JC, 634B14JC, 634B24JC, 634E14JC, 635A24JC, 635B14JC, 636D24JC and 636E14JC.
While (thankfully) no pet injuries or illnesses have been reported thus far, the plastic particles can present choking hazards.
Mars is asking that retailers remove the products from their shelves, and that dog parents cease feeding this to their dogs immediately.
