Hill’s Science Diet Dog Food Market Withdrawal of November 2015

According to a notice posted at PetSmart retail stores, Hill’s Pet Nutrition is conducting a voluntary market withdrawal of some of its canned dog foods for reasons yet officially cited. However, on a pet food blog discussing the situation, a contributor who stated he/she was a Hill’s rep wrote that “the reason for this ‘withdrawal’ of some of the products was a printing error of information on the labels. The food is NOT an issue at all. When the packaging is corrected, the items will be re-labeled and distributed.”

What Is a Market Withdrawal?

market withdrawal is different than a product recall.
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.
