Pedigree canned dog food is one of the leading brands in the pet food industry, and has been a favorite of pet owners for many years. While the brand is known for its quality and variety, there may have been some recalls on certain products over the years.
In 2017, Mars Petcare (the company behind Pedigree) issued a recall for some cans of Pedigree canned dog food due to concerns about possible contamination with Salmonella. The recall affected specific batches of Pedigree Chicken & Rice Dinner and Chicken & Vegetable Dinner canned dog foods, which were distributed in the United States. The company advised customers to discard any cans that had been purchased with the affected lot numbers.
In 2018, there was another recall issued for certain Pedigree canned dog food products due to potential contamination with plastic pieces. This recall affected specific batches of Pedigree Chopped Ground Dinner Wet Canned Dog Food with Chicken and Beef flavors that were distributed in the United States and Canada. Again, customers were advised to discard any cans that had been purchased with the affected lot numbers.
In 2020, yet another recall was issued for some batches of Pedigree Canned Dog Food due to concerns about possible contamination with elevated levels of Vitamin D. This recall affected specific batches of Pedigree Small Dog Complete Nutrition Grilled Steak & Vegetable Flavor Dry Dog Food that was distributed in Canada only. Customers were advised not to feed this product to their pets and to return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund or exchange.
While there have been some recalls on certain Pedigree canned dog foods over the years, they are relatively rare occurrences and not indicative of a larger issue with the brand or its products. The company has always taken quick action when alerted to potential hazards or issues with their products and has recalled them immediately when necessary.
