March 10, 2016 — Nestle Purina has announced it is voluntarily recalling select lots of its Beneful and Purina Pro Plan wet dog foods because they may not contain the recommended level of vitamins and minerals.
Purina discovered through its own testing that the affected dog food did not contain the recommended level of vitamins and minerals and voluntarily recalled the product.
What’s Being Recalled?
The recall includes select lots of wet dog food 10-oz. tubs under the Beneful Prepared Meals, Beneful Chopped Blends and Pro Plan Savory Meals brands.
No other Purina products or sizes are affected.

What to Do?
Purina is conducting this voluntary recall as a precaution for those dogs who may have eaten the affected product as their only meal for more than several weeks.
If you have questions about your pet’s health, the company suggests that you contact your veterinarian.
Although most of the recalled product contains all of the vitamins and minerals your dog needs, Purina recommends that you discard any of the affected product you may have.
