Dog’s Death May Be Linked to Recent Pet Food Recall

News of the massive Cesar Filet Mignon dog food recall didn’t reach Anna Volgensang in time to prevent her dog’s death, but she’s hoping others won’t have to face the same situation.

Mars Petcare US announced the voluntary recall after hard pieces of plastic that entered the food during production had been reported in several containers of the food. Unaware of the recall, Volgensang fed her dog Babushka the food.

“He looked really terrible. I mean really terrible he had a hard time breathing because they said it would stop their breathing,” she told WMAR. “When he threw up over at my daughter’s there were those big plastic things in the throw up.”
