According to a press release issued by Mars Petcare, the hard white pieces of plastic entered the food during the production process.


“While a small number of consumers have reported finding the plastic pieces,” the press release adds, “to date, we have not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product.”


Mars Petcare US is encouraging people who have purchased the affected product to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange.


Pet owners who have questions about the recall can call 800-421-6456 between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm CST, Monday through Friday, or from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm CST, on Saturdays. Visit https://www.cesar.com/notice for more information.
