Purina has issued a voluntary recall of three product lines due to possible nutrient deficiencies after internal quality testing found that some 10-oz wet dog food tubs may not contain the recommended level of added vitamins and minerals, according to a company release. The items were manufactured in only one Purina facility and were sold across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.


The lines affected are sold under the Beneful Prepared Meals, Beneful Chopped Blends and Pro Plan Savory Meals brands. A full list of recalled product is below:
