Mars Corporate News Release
At CESAR®, we care about all dogs, and their safety and well-being is extremely important to us. For that reason, we have initiated a voluntary recall of a limited number of CESAR® Filet Mignon Flavor wet dog food products due to a potential choking risk from small pieces of plastic which entered the food during the production process. CESAR® Classics Filet Mignon can be purchased individually, as well as in flavor variety multipacks. The Lot Codes listed below are the only affected products. All other CESAR® products can be safely consumed.
Select packages of this product may contain small pieces of plastic, which entered the food during the production process. We encourage consumers who have purchased affected product to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange. While a small number of consumers have reported finding the plastic pieces, we have not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product.
At Mars Petcare, we take our responsibility to pets and their owners seriously and are working with all of our distributors and retail customers to ensure the recalled products are no longer sold and are removed from inventory.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this recall. Please see detailed information on the affected products below. You can also reach us at 1-800-421-6456 if you have questions.
