Mars Petcare U-S has announced a voluntary recall of bags of Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food due to possible contamination with a “foreign material.” In this case that material includes small metal fragments which might have entered the packages during the production process. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the recall involves a limited number of bags – about two dozen – produced at a single manufacturing facility and shipped to one retail customer.
Today is National Dog Day, celebrated every August 26th, as a way to help raise public awareness about the number of dogs in need of rescue. It’s also a day to acknowledge the family dogs, service dogs and working dogs with law enforcement and the military. Some dogs put their lives on the line every day to find bombs or bad guys, to lead the blind or help adults and children with disabilities. Steve Grzanich interviewed the founder of National Dog Day, author and animal behaviorist Colleen Paige. Visit the official website of National Dog Day
