Why is the dog food being recalled? 

The dog food is thought to contain small pieces of metal which make the product unsafe, the FSA said.

The agency is advising customers who bought the product not to feed it to their dogs, and to instead return it to a store with or without a receipt for a full refund.

The recall has been issued for the following three batches:

Encore Beef Selection in Gravy (multipack)

Pack size: five tins x 156 g

Batch code: LU1-343
