Pursuant to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Nestlé Purina PetCare has started a recall for Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Low Fat (PPVD EN Low Fat) because of a mistake in labeling.
On September 15, some cans of the Purina ONE True Instinct Tender Cuts In Gravy With Real Turkey & Venison wet dog food were accidentally labeled as the prescription wet dog food in one particular facility.
Although the actual dog food can be fed without doubt, dogs that need the PPVD EN Low Fat diet might get digestive problems.
Various pet parents have contacted the company wondering about the different texture of the food compared to previous cans. Usually, the correct product has kind of pate consistency whereas the “false” food are chunks in gravy.
So far, there are no cases of any illness or injury due to the mislabeled product. Pet owners could only purchase the dog food by prescription at vet clinics of retailers with permission to validate a prescription.
Purina PetCare requests to eliminate all mislabeled products. Furthermore it is advised to bring back any of the affected products. These can be identified by the UPC (38100 17599), production code (22581159 L4TR6) and “Best Before Sept 2024” date on the bottom of each PPVD EN Low Fat can.
