Simmons Pet Food has issued a recall for fifteen varieties of its canned dog food product line due to the linings separating from the inside of the cans. The Arkansas-based company initiated a voluntary withdrawal from distribution this past Monday (June 12th) after finding random flaking of the inside coating of the cans, with all affected products required to be removed from retail store shelves.
The products affected by the Simmons pet food recall include all 22-ounce canned pet food with “use by” dates between March 16, 2008, and June 6, 2008. The dog foods are distributed through major retail store chains, including Wal-Mart (Ol Roy), Kmart, and Allied Foods. We now have a full FAQ available on the Simmons dog food recall with additional information on the news.
