On August 26, 2014 Mars Petcare US has announced a voluntary recall of 22 bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food due to the possible presence of a foreign material.

The affected bags were sold in Dollar General stores in four states.

Although the small metal fragments are not embedded in the food itself, they may present a risk of injury if consumed.

The company is working with Dollar General to ensure that the recalled product is no longer sold and is removed from inventory.
