A dog food company has issued an urgent recall of some of its most popular products due to the fear of contamination.
MasterPet took nine batches of its Black Hawk Dog Food assortment off the shelves on Wednesday after the ‘mold developed in some products’ was found.
“As part of our ongoing quality control processes, we have discovered a problem with specific Black Hawk parties,” the company said.
The products involved are Black Hawk Chicken and Rice, Lamb and Rice, Large Breed Chicken and Rice and Puppy Large Breed Chicken and Rice.
MasterPet brought nine batches of its Black Hawk Dog Food range (including Adult Lamb and Rice) off the shelves on Wednesday
“We have decided to voluntarily and immediately remove all these parties from the market to ensure that we can live up to our own quality expectations, as well as those of our Black Hawk customers and their pets,” said MasterPet.
“To date, we have not reported any disease to any of the animals, and if the product is affected, the fungus is very clear to consumers.”
The company encouraged customers to check the best-before date on damaged bags.
“You can find the best before date on the back of the bag to the middle, horizontally stamped in black, next to the ingredient list,” it said.
MasterPet emphasized that the recall was voluntary and that “the quality of our products and the health of pets are paramount”.
