This recall is the result of a logistic error. A component of the dry dog food, which was on hold because of a positive Salmonella result, was accidentally shipped to Mars Petcare's Tracy, CA facility and used to produce the Pedigree dog food that is the subject of this recall.
No illnesses – pet or human – have been reported. Approximately 100 bags of pet food with a best buy date of 07/2009 are involved.
Mars Petcare has notified Albertson's and is also cooperating with FDA on this recall. Consumers in Southern California and the Las Vegas area should check the best buy date on the Pedigree package and return any recalled product to Albertson's.
