According to Mars Petcare Canada, there has been a voluntary recall made of multiple Whiskas dry cat food products as a cautionary measure owing to the products not meeting the highly stringent internal quality specifications. Mars Petcare has extremely strict food quality specs which ensure the safety of its products before they are sold to the general public.

Along with the decision to recall certain products to be on the safe side, Mars Petcare has provided a full list of the products and best by dates to ensure consumers are able to recognize whether they have purchased the affected foodstuffs.

Advice has been put forward by Mars Petcare Canada to consumers to check whether they have purchased any of these products and dispose of any remaining food. The ingredients used to make the food include raw ingredients which do not meet the required standards and should not have been put into production.
