Companion Canned Dog Food Recalled for Metal Fragments, Choking Hazard

Companion canned dog food sold at Stop and Shop, Martin’s Foods, and at Giant Food Store retail outlets is being recalled because it may contain – an as yet unnamed – “foreign material”.

This recall coincides with the announcement of PetSmart’s Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food which was recalled for “metal contamination” which poses a choking risk to pets. Both of these brands are private label brands manufactured for them by Simmons pet food therefore, we can assume the recall is for the same reason as PetSmart’s: Metal contamination.

Customers may return the recalled product for a full refund. Unfortunately, the number provided in the announcements for additional information (479-935-6145) “was given out in error” and the recorded message refers customers to the FDA Recalls, Market Withdrawals, & Safety Alerts webpage which has no information posted about this recall.

  1. Odd that three foods have been recalled at the same time for the same thing: Petsmart, Wellness, and this food. Hmm. Could they all be made by the same co-packer? What else comes from there? Bet we haven’t seen the end of this one.


    • Yes, they are all made by Simmon’s pet food. Of course, Simmon’s won’t tell you who their clients are, but the pet food brands will often fess up. They were all recalled for the same reason: metal fragment contamination.
