I did some further testing on that site that you posted...http://www.consumeraffairs.com/pets/nutro.html
...i was scrolling thru some of the "Testimonials" and they caught themselves in a lie so to speak. About an 8th of the way down someone supposedly from Ogden UT quoted the Food & Drug Administration website as www.fda.com
. Even though they got the address correct, they got the website wrong...www.fda.com
leads to the Food & Drug Assistance site. This could be just a typical typo of sorts but if anyone was really serious about this topic they would've gotten thier sources correct. The Food & Drug Administration is located at http://www.fda.gov/
However, I did a search on www.snopes.com
for further validity of this story it comes up True ( pls see http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/menu.asp
) ...HOWEVER...this story is well over a year old...March of 2007 to be more precise. I would assume that the places where you buy your pet food has complied with the recall that was noted by now and has kept a vigilant eye out for other such incidents. If you feel that concerned about this issue, i would talk with the store manager and confirm that they complied with the recall.
As you can tell by now, the folks on this site that has and continues to use Nutro brand food, believe it to be safe, including me...i feed my three rascals Nutro Kitten Dry. Now, be your own judge in this and feed your animals what you believe to good for them.
FYI. That consumer affairs site is not that legit as such that each State has thier own Department of Consumer Affairs which is what you should really check. For Example, California's is www.dca.ca.gov
Food for thought.
