WASHINGTON — The US Food & Drug Administration has announced that out of an abundance of caution, Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of Muse wet cat food Natural Chicken Recipe in Gravy in three-ounce cans.
The product could contain rubber pieces that are translucent yellow with a blue backing, which may present a potential choking hazard.
The affected products were distributed nationwide and available for purchase at pet specialty and e-commerce retailers. You can identify the product by the UPC, production code and "Best By" date on the bottom of the can. If you purchased a variety pack, only the Natural Chicken Recipe in Gravy cans are included in the recall.
The issue came to light after complaints were lodged by pet owners, who observed the rubber pieces in the product. Purina assured that it had made changes to our process to prevent future occurrences
The company recommended that pet owners discard any of the affected product, and they will replace it.
