Pedigree recall due to pieces of plastic!

Pedigree pet foods has announced a recall on three types of weight management canned foods.  There potentially pieces of plastic in the food!  This happened because pieces of blue plastic broke off of a conveyor belt in the factory.  The plastic bits are not poisonous but could possibly pose a choking risk.
