The package was mislabeled and contained a different product

Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is recalling Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Low Fat (PPVD EN Low Fat) prescription wet dog food.

Cans of a different dog food were labeled as PPVD EN Low Fat. While the mislabeled diet is safe to feed, it is not the intended formula for dogs requiring a prescription PPVD EN Low Fat diet.

The mislabeled product contains chunks in gravy, while the correct product looks more like a pate consistency.

There are no reports to date of illness or injury to dogs to date.

The recalled product comes in 13.4 oz cans with UPC 38100 17599, production code 22581159 L4TR6 and “Best Before Sept 2024” date on the bottom of the can.

What to do

Customers who purchased the recalled product should not feed it to their pets, but discard it. Nestlé Purina will replace it as quickly as possible.

Consumers with question may contact the firm at (800) 579-7733, Monday-Saturday, from 8am - 5pm (CST) or by email at
