Yeah I have to admit I've never checked the expiry date on pet food. I rang them today and they told me I could go back and swap it. I sort of want to swap it for RC! The pet shop owner hadn't heard of the recall either.

Only reason I knew of the recall was thanks to the pet business list I am on..thankful that they posted the info so I could share it here.

I do not know for a fact that I had a recalled bag, as I had already thrown out the bag. I do, however, believe that I did have one. What I noticed was that Jordan, who has a sensitive system, had a huge reduction in appitite. The only blood value that was off (over 2 weeks ago) was Creatinin was a little high. He needs to go back in for a recheck, but once I stopped feeding him the Nutro he began eating fine. None of the other cats showed any sever symptoms, but on a couple occasions Isaac & Maggie wouldn't finish their food.

Now I've been feeding Taste of the Wild dry in the morning. You'd think Jordan had died & gone to heaven. He scarfs it down like it's the best thing he's ever eatedn.

I can't be certain that I had a recalled bag, but less than a month ago I bought a small bag- which both cats promptly vomited up several times. I had two litter box misses with loose stool as well. I switched them back to the ultra premium stuff as soon as I got paid Friday. Too bad I no longer have the bag.

Mine ate a whole 16# bag of the crap, 3/4 of ANOTHER 16# bag, and I have ANOTHER 16 # bag that wasn't opened!!! All were on the recall list. I buy several bags at a time so I don't have to keep going back. My 4 cats get 1 cup in the a.m and a can of wet in the p.m.

Have noticed they were picking at their food, 3 of the 4 have threw up in the last month or two-but nothing serious. Just keeping a very careful eye on them.

I give up on Nutro, I was thinking about going back after they smooth this over-but I don't have the heart to invest $25 in another bag of their food-knowing that they have had 2 recalls in 12ish months. The hunt is on for a similar food with a similar cost.

Iam returning the full bag, and hope to get some sort of refund on the 1/4 of a bag, and possibly the bag they already ate. Would they give me a refund for a bag they already ate-that I have the UPC & best by date on? I am glad I saved it-was saving it for the frequent buyer thing-but I am just going to save UPC's from now on due to so many recalls. Am I crazy to try to get some sort of refund when the cats already ate it? I mean I didn't get the product that they said was in the bag-I got crap that made my babies sick.

How much is a big bag of TOTW? Is it alright for crystal prone cats, even though it is grain free?

If you got it at petsmart they should give you store credit for even the opened bags, so that you can get something else.

Petsmart will give you, at worst, a store credit if you bought the food there, even if it's not the lot being recalled, and even if it's mostly eaten.

I'd contact Nutro regarding the cats tossing their cookies, as well as putting a call into your vet - I suspect nothing serious from your description, but doesn't hurt to call or email.

Yeah, that is crazy. The employee at my PetCo didn't hear about it either. He still gave me a store credit (almost $45 for a 20 lb bag with just a couple pounds of food left in it). Good idea about taking in the fda article.

I got another brand of food. Even though I think my cats have done great on Nutro, I feel the same way as this:

I'm very lucky to be on a pet retailers list that shares any kind of information like this asap.

I have to give my Petsmart credit - I went in that evening, and all the affected bags had been pulled down, notices put up, and credits/refunds were being processed - no question. Of course, it helped that Nutro had initiated the recall and contacted all the retailers, from what I was told.
