March 30 (UPI) — Purina has voluntarily recalled some Muse wet cat food, citing complaints of rubber pieces found in cans.

Nestle Purina PetCare Company announced the voluntary recall Thursday.

“The product could contain rubber pieces that are translucent yellow with a blue backing, which may present a potential choking hazard,” the company said in a statement. “We became aware of the issue after receiving complaints from pet owners who observed the rubber pieces in the product.”

“We have made changes to our process so this should not happen in the future,” the company added.

Purina has yet to receive any reports of injury or illness, but said it is conducting the voluntary recall as a precaution.

“We recommend that you discard any of the affected product you may have, and we will replace it,” the company said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also posted the recall on its website.
