According to a media release from the company, an issue was discovered with a number of dry dog foods manufactured last year after mould was found growing in some of the products.

"The quality of our products and the health of pets is paramount," it said in the statement.

"As part of our ongoing quality control processes, we have discovered an issue with specific batches of Black Hawk that were manufactured last year, resulting in mould developing in some products."

"We have made the decision to VOLUNTARILY AND IMMEDIATELY RECALL all of these batches from the market to ensure that we can deliver on our own quality expectations, as well as those of our Black Hawk customers and their pets."
