The pet food company MasterPet issued an urgent recall of nine batches of its Black Hawk Dog Food product due to fears of mold contamination.
The voluntary recall affects the following products manufactured between August and November 2019:
- Black Hawk Adult Chicken and Rice (3 kg, 10 kg and 20 kg)
- Black Hawk Adult Lamb and Rice (3kg and 20kg)
- Black Hawk Adult Large Breed Chicken and Rice (only 20 kg)
- Black Hawk Puppy Large Breed Chicken and Rice (only 20 kg)
“The quality of our products and the health of pets is paramount,” MasterPet announced on its website on Tuesday.
“As part of our ongoing quality control processes, we have discovered a problem with specific Black Hawk batches that were manufactured last year, which resulted in the development of mold in some products.”
“To date, we have not had reports of disease in any animal and if the product is affected, mold is very obvious to consumers.
“We have made the decision to voluntarily and immediately withdraw all these lots from the market to ensure that we can meet our own quality expectations, as well as those of our Black Hawk customers and their pets.”
