What Is a Market Withdrawal?
A 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.
We have been unable to determine the reason for this action. Or to verify the authenticity of the posted noticed.
For this reason, no further information is available at this time.
What to Do?
For questions, please contact Hill’s Science Diet Customer Service at 800-445-5777 from 8 am to 5 pm CST, Monday through Friday.
U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.
