Purina One...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I just bought my kitties Purina One chicken.
Just when I got home, I noticed that it does have the wheat gluten!
I read that this one is on the safe list but after finding that it has this ingredient, is it still safe?
sorry for all the questions.

Same here....can you just return it?

At this time it is not on the recall list but I agree with the others about not feeding anything with wheat gluten in it.

I agree...I would take it back, opened or not...and just tell them you want food with no wheat gluten.

Yes...wheat gluten is the only suspect ingredient now. Corn gluten is from corn...so it's totally different.

So I guess that I will stick to my Hill Country Fare Dinnertime dry food, it doesn't contain the wheat gluten, only corn gluten.
I hope that they return it at Petco.
Thanks.

On the bag of Purina One Chicken and Rice Adult Dry I have currently, wheat gluten is listed as an ingredient.

Damn!, i've got an unopened bag of the chicken here and it's got wheat gluten meal in it, so is that the same?.

I need to speak to Nestle tomorrow morning sharp!

That would be the same, Susan. Nestle will probably tell you that your bag was produced in Europe, so there's no need to worry, but.... there's no guarantee that European producers haven't been importing wheat gluten from China, too.

Just to be safe I would switch to a better quality food or even better yet a raw diet. You can find good cat food here though. www.Naturapet.com.http ://www.thecatsite.com/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif

crappola, I thought it was ok, I never read that far down on the ingredients. I just bought some today, and they have been eating out of the bag I bought before the recall. I also get the purina one for sensitive system and that does nothave wheat gluten. So I guess we will eat that and I will take the other bags back and get more sensitve system.

There was a news items in the paper today that Nestle was recalling some of their dry foods - sorry I can't remember exactly what right now, but it was in the Toronto Star this morning and I've already tossed the paper.

is Purina One Natural Blends + Vitamins and Minerals. I also didn't read that far to the bottom and that is where the wheat was. I only saw corn gluten and thought that it would be safe.
It is so frustrating trying to find something that is safe!

I just checked out the Purina site. Apparently, with the exception of ProPlan UrinaryTract Health Formula, all Purina One and Purina ProPlan dry foods contain wheat gluten. http://www.purina.com/ They haven't been affected by the recall, though.
post #20 of 26
Just an FYI, though....the canned Urinary Tract Health contains wheat gluten.
Here is a link to the ingredients.

I spoke to a girl called Kate at Purina One first thing this morning. She assured me that the wheat gluten wasn't imported from China. I asked where it came from, and she was certain it was home produced, but said she would double check and e-mail me. As yet i havent had a reply, so i'll be ringing her first thing.

At the moment the girls are having Purina One turkey and rice for hairball control, and that's the only one that doesn't seem to have the wheat gluten?

they did return the opened bag. They said that it wasn't recalled but they took it back anyway.

Unless I am blind, the purina one sensitive systems does not contain wheat gluten.
post #24 of 26
Adult Cat Sensitive Systems w/ turkey.

Senior Cat Senior Protection Formula w/ chicken.

Got them both today, and am in the process of gradually switching our 2-yr. old cat to the sensitive systems diet. When the all-clear is announced, we will be switching her back. Or 16-yr. old is eating Purina wet food senior diet.

I really hope that the wheat gluten isn't imported from China. I feed my cat pro plan. I checked both cartons of food before the FDA recall; they both contain wheat gluten. I haven't bought him any new food since early March, which I think was before the recall. I have no idea what to feed him until things are cleared out.

I've been feeding all of our cats including Buster (a feral shed cat) and Skippy (a new feral that eats Buster's food) Purina Pro Plan 3 oz. cans and I just found out that every variety except chicken and liver contains wheat gluten! Who would have thought this?

I stopped at the Pet Supplies store tonight and checked every label on the cans and then I bought more of the no wheat gluten chicken and liver. The dry foods I've been feeding: Nutro natural choice, Purina 1 Salmon and Tuna flavor, and Hill's Adult original Science Diet contain no wheat gluten, but do have corn gluten.

Poor Buster and to a lesser extent, Skippy, were subjected to the awful Nutro Natural Choice pouches. So far, Buster is eating well and still alive and Skippy, who is much bolder and will yowl on or near the porch when he's hungry, is also doing well.
