Nestle Purina has recalled the cat food “out of an abundance of caution” saying its “number one commitment is the health and well-being of pets.”

The rubber pieces in the recalled cat food can be identified as translucent yellow with a blue backing. The cat food was distributed nationwide and sold at pet specialty and e-commerce retailers.

Nestle became aware of the contamination issue through a pet owner compliant and said it has changed its processes so the issue would not happen in the future. The company has not received any reports of injury or illness due to the recalled cat food.

Pet owners are urged to discard the affected cat food, which Nestle Purina said they will provide a replacement for. Questions can be directed to Nestle Purina at 1-800-982-3885, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
