Nestle Purina Recalls Cat Food for Foreign Material; Rubber Pieces Found in Canned Food

Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is recalling Muse wet cat food Natural Chicken Recipe in Gravy in three-ounce cans because the cat food could contain rubber pieces in it which may present a potential choking hazard.

They became aware of the issue after receiving complaints from pet owners who found the rubber pieces in the product. The company claims to have made changes to their process, so this should not happen in the future.

The affected products were distributed nationwide and available for purchase at pet specialty and e-commerce retailers. We have asked our retailers to remove these affected products.

You can identify the product by the UPC, production code and “Best By” date on the bottom of the can. If you purchased a variety pack, only the Natural Chicken Recipe in Gravy cans are included in the recall.

To date, no other Purina products are impacted by this voluntary recall.

Now it’s my turn to talk about how Poisoned Pets survives.

Unlike most other pet food news organizations, I chose to my independent, investigative reporting free and available for everyone. The difference is my work is free from commercial bias and not influenced by pet food companies, or advertisers. This is important as it enables me to give a voice to those less heard, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes me different to so many others in the pet media; at a time when factual, honest reporting is crucial.

So, that’s why I need you. Your support is critical for the future of Poisoned Pets. Won’t you please help?
