Yesterday, I was alarmed when I saw this article from CanineChronicle.com. Mars Petcare is recalling a limited number of Cesar Filet Mignon Flavor wet dog food products due to a potential choking risk.
The company says the voluntary recall was issued after small pieces of plastic made its way into the food during the production process. The wet food can be purchased individually, as well as in flavor variety packs.
However, this was a good move of the company. So, for those who feed their canine companions with this product, you should read this:
Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall of a limited number of CESAR® Classics Filet Mignon Flavor product due to a potential choking risk from hard white pieces of plastic which entered the food during the production process.
