Attention dog owners…the FDA is asking customers to throw away three types of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products dog food.
Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of its Muse wet cat food “Natural Chicken Recipe in Gravy,” the company announced in a statement Friday.
The recall is “out of an abundance of caution” as some of the three-ounce cans “could contain rubber pieces that are translucent yellow with a blue backing, which may present a potential choking hazard.”
“We’re pet owners and pet lovers, and our number one commitment is the health and well-being of pets,” the company said in the statement that also was posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website. “We only want products that meet our high-quality standards in your pet’s bowl.”

No other Purina products are impacted by this voluntary recall.
The company said it had “not received any reports to date of injury or illness to cats fed this product,” and the recall was a precaution. It’s recommended that consumers “discard any of the affected product you may have, and we will replace it,” the statement said.

The company said it learned of the issue after receiving complaints from pet owners who saw rubber pieces in the cans.
“We have made changes to our process so this should not happen in the future,” Purina said in the statement.
