Nestlé Purina PetCare Voluntarily Recalls a limited amount of Purina Pro Plan Complete Essentials Tuna Entrée In Sauce Wet Cat Food in 3oz cans.

July 14, 2021


Out of an abundance of caution, Nestlé Purina PetCare is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of Purina Pro Plan Complete Essentials Tuna Entrée In Sauce Wet Cat Food in 3oz cans because it could potentially contain black flexible plastic pieces which could pose a choking hazard if swallowed.  No other Purina products are affected.


We’re pet owners and pet lovers, and our number one commitment is the health and well-being of pets.

We only want products that meet our high-quality standards in your pet’s bowl.


We became aware of the issue after receiving a small number of complaints from pet owners who observed the plastic pieces in this product. We have identified the source and made changes to our process so this should not happen in the future.


We are conducting this voluntary recall as a precaution. To prevent injury or illness, we recommend consumers discard the product and we will replace it.


This product is available for sale at pet specialty, farm/feed and online retailers in the United States only. We have asked our retailers to remove and discard these affected products.


You can identify the product by the UPC, production code and “Best By” date on the bottom of the can.


Please note, only one production lot is included in this recall.
