While there was originally no information given by Science Diet or PetSmart for the voluntary withdrawal of several of their canned dog foods, we have now learned that the withdrawal was due to a labeling issue. As we previously stated, the FDA considers withdrawals to be minor issues.

**Original Post**

Science Diet has issued a voluntary withdrawal for several of their canned dog foods. Currently, no reason has been given.

PetSmart was the first to alert pup parents to the issue by placing signs in their stores.

Voluntary withdrawals do not indicate any sort of health risk to your pup. But, if you have questions or concerns regarding this, contact Hill’s Science Diet at 800-445-5777 from 8 am to 5 pm CST, Monday through Friday.
