  1. Mollie, there is also a related recall of Companion brand canned dog food, sold at Giant, Martin’s and Stop & Shop supermarkets. That notice has not yet made it to FDA, but it is posted on the supermarkets’ recall pages. Same expiration code, same can size, same explanation. I posted it on my FB page and also here:

    I have no idea who the manufacturer is, as these are private label products.


    • Thanks Phyllis! I found out all the three companies (Wellness, Companion, and PetSmart’s Grreat brands) that posted recalls were all made at the same canning facility: A Simmon’s pet food plant. And they were all recalled for the same reason: Metal fragments.
