Nutro Releases Info on Nutro Puppy Food Withdrawal, 10/01/2009

September 30, 2009

Nutro has now issued a press release:  Nutro Products Voluntary Retrieval of Select Puppy Foods

 The press release is here:

http://www.nutroproducts.com/press10-1-09.shtml

What is confusing me is that it refers to melted plastic recently found in some Nutro dry dog and “cat food”, yet the release does not mention specific dates of “cat food”.

As a followup to yesterday’s post Nutro Announces Puppy Food Withdrawal; May Contain Melted Plastic

Also, see discussion in the Itchmo Forums.
