The FDA defines a voluntary market withdrawal as:

Market withdrawal: occurs when a product has a minor violation that would not be subject to FDA legal action. The firm removes the product from the market or corrects the violation. For example, a product removed from the market due to tampering, without evidence of manufacturing or distribution problems, would be a market withdrawal.

Numerous sources have stated “product mislabeling” as the reason for the withdrawal, though this information has not been confirmed or denied by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, who have remained quiet about the product withdrawal, despite numerous questions posed to them by concerned customers.

If you currently have ANY of the products listed above, it is recommended that you return to the place of purchase, as the reason for the product withdrawal is yet unknown.

Hill’s has only maintained that their food is safe to feed as directed, but has not explained why these products were withdrawn.

For questions, call Hill’s Customer Service Center at Hill’s Pet Nutrition at (800) 354-4557.
