FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 26, 2014 – Today, Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall of 22 bags of PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition dry dog food products due to the possible presence of a foreign material. The bags were produced in one manufacturing facility, and shipped to one retail customer. The facility production line has been shut down until this issue is resolved.

Affected bags, which were sold between August 18 and August 25 in 12 Dollar General stores* in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and Louisiana, may contain small metal fragments, which could have entered the packages during the production process. The foreign material is not embedded in the food itself, but may present a risk of injury if consumed. We encourage consumers who have purchased affected product to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange. We have not received any reports of injury or illness associated with the affected product. The lot codes indicated below should not be sold or consumed.

Mars Petcare US is working with Dollar General to ensure that the recalled products are no longer sold and are removed from inventory.

Emotional Reunion

Hi there. I’ve been having problems posting videos ever since they upgraded the “create new post” section. I finally had time to sit down and try to figure out what I was doing wrong. As far as I can tell, I’m not doing anything wrong. I looked at the help section, did a GIS and still couldn’t get it to work. After much frustration, tried using the shortcode and finally got it to work…YAY!

Here is one of many videos that I have been saving to post on my blog. This cute little puppy is so excited to see a family member that he actually passes out from the excitement. Rebecca Ehalt said that it’s been 2 years since she’s been home.

This is a very touching video. And not to worry…the family showed the video to the dog’s vet. The dog appears to be happy and healthy

A word of caution, you may want to turn your volume down just a bit before clicking on play.

Mario in Disguise?

So, I had surgery a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty major surgery and I am still in recovery phase. Because I’ve been mainly relaxing on the couch and haven’t felt like sitting in front of the computer much, and I want to get some posts out there, I thought I would revisit some posts from my old blog on Blogger. This one in particular is a favorite from December 22, 2012. I hope you find it as funny as I do.

OW! It hurts to laugh 😀
