December 9th 2010 5:25 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Meowma was thinking so loud that I could hear her. She was so worried about kitties having uti's and all. I was telling her that I was glad she had fed me Nutro Max Cat, dry food as it was made to help prevent uti's,kidney,and bladder stones along with crystals.I was one of 3 cats to reach 22 years old on this food. I am so glad that all of her cats and even the dogs are currently eating Nutro Max.Meowma also knows that all cats may be fed differently and that all of there pepplz may believe differently also, and this is fine.

Meowma can not belive that it has almost been 4 years since- I went over the Rainbow Bridge

I find myself thinking of Meow all the time. Esp when I hear that dry food is bad for cats. My Meow ate only dry food since I got him at the age of 5 and he lived for 22 years, he was the 3rd cat to live to be so old too. Now that he is gone, I think it would be a bit strange to be talking for him though. I had another cat I brought to Florida from Colorado and his name was Little Bit. Meow was so much like him. But he had to be put down because he got Fatty Liver Disease from the food his vet told me to buy. That is when I switched all my animals over to Nutro Products and I have never looked back. Since feeding Nutro, I have not had to take any of my animals to the vet for any health related problems.. well that is not all true. When I found my pug, I had to get him fixed and have his teeth cleaned. Then he came down with ring worm one time. But in the 11 of his 16 years... I would say that is good. My Catahoula, Zak had to get fixed and he got a yeast infection in his right ear once and that is all for any of them, other then getting fixed. And still people keep telling me dry food is not good for my animals.
What I like about the food is the fact that there they do not use any whole ground yellow corn or grits and no chicken by-products that can be things such as chicken heads, feet and intestines.. These things were in the food I used too feed... and are in a lot of what is out there now. Every ingredient that Nutro uses is in there for a reason and I like that. All of there food is Natural too. Now I get people asking about the Vitamin k thing and I went through a lot of information on my own and it does not bother me at all. I would rather have it in there then not have it at all. Besides it is the very last ingredient listed and in a very small amount too. Believe you me, if I thought it would cause any harm to any of my animals... I would not be feeding Nutro let alone working for them, part time.
Twentyfour years ago, I asked to work part time for Nutro and stopped because I was young and wanted my weekends to myself. Then 4 years ago on the 27th of April I asked to work part time for them again. Before working for Nutro, I was a Professional Pet Groomer for 12 years and before that I was a Vet tech for 5 years. I can honestly tell you that working for Nutro in the pet stores is the best job I have ever had. I just wish I could work longer than 4 hours at a time. mol Now all of my cats go in and out when ever they want and always have. Kinda hard to tell them that they are not allowed to use the big doggy door, you know... MOL =^^= peace

Meow passed away the Saturday after I started working for Nutro in 2006.
I miss him very much and my Husband and I still hear him outside from time to time and he has never been at the house we rent now.... But I know he is always with and around me still.

FDA: 'No Investigation into NUTRO Pet Food'

April 23rd 2009 11:43 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Just wanted to get some facts straight about the information being posted on consumer affairs as well as answer some questions being asked!
**************************************************** ****** ***
Question: Are NUTRO® products safe?

Answer: Yes. All NUTRO® products are safe and conform to the standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).
************************************************** ******** ***
Question: Why are NUTRO® quality assurance & recall facts being addressed?

Answer: We have received recent isolated reports of inaccurate information posted online regarding the quality and safety of NUTRO® pet foods products. Many blogs and Internet sites can be a repository for misinformation and hearsay regarding many topics.
*************************************************** ******* ***
Question: What measures does Nutro™ undertake to ensure the safety of its products?

Answer: NUTRO® products undergo rigorous quality assurance testing beginning with raw ingredients and ending with testing finished products. This includes testing to confirm that no melamine, mold toxins, or pathogenic bacteria are detected in any NUTRO® pet foods.

While consumer concerns about NUTRO® product quality are rare, we take every complaint seriously. When we learn of an issue, we work with consumers to obtain information and request that samples of any product in question be submitted for testing at an independent facility. An in-depth review is performed to determine if an issue does exist.
**************************************************** *********
Question: Are the examples found on ConsumerAffairs.com of dogs eating NUTRO® products and experience health issues true?

Answer: Thank you for your interest in getting Nutro Products quality assurance & recall facts. ConsumerAffairs.com is a self-described “independent Web-based consumer news and resource center,” not affiliated with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission or Consumer Reports.

ConsumerAffairs.com posted an August 6 update to their June 23 posting regarding Nutro pet foods. The most notable information in the posting, and the subject of its title, "Expert Finds Unexplained Pet Deaths 'Not Consistent,'" are the findings of Dr. Steven Hansen, a veterinary toxicologist at the ASPCA. Dr. Hansen conducted an in-depth review of the complaints against Nutro Products and concluded that the complaints appear to be random, non-pet food related health issues.

Every NUTRO® product that was analyzed in relation to the June 23 posting on ConsumerAffairs.com has been shown to be safe. It should be noted that in some of these cases, outside sources have provided clear verification that NUTRO® products were NOT the cause of any pet health issues. In others, Nutro Products has taken active steps to address pet owners' concerns and determine the cause of pet health issues. We've either spoken with or left multiple messages for all of the consumers cited in the June 23 posting. Our findings agree with Dr. Hansen’s; there is nothing that indicates that these pet health issues were caused by NUTRO® pet foods.

There are other elements to the August 6, 2008 Consumer Affairs’ post which, as with previous postings on the site, attempt to raise doubt concerning the safety of NUTRO® products. While consumer concerns about NUTRO® product quality are rare, we take every complaint seriously. When we learn of an issue we work with consumers to obtain information and request that samples of any product in question be submitted for testing at an independent facility. An in-depth review is performed to determine if an issue does exist. Consumers with questions or concerns about NUTRO® products are encouraged to contact our Consumer Services Department at 1-800-833-5330.

All of our products are safe and conform to the standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). NUTRO® products undergo rigorous quality assurance testing beginning with raw ingredients and ending with testing finished products. This includes testing to confirm that no melamine, mold toxins, or pathogenic bacteria are detected in any NUTRO® pet foods.
**************************************************** *********
Question: Are the claims made on ConsumerAffairs.com about a NUTRO® FDA investigation and dogs eating Nutro and experiencing health issues true?

Answer: On April 20, ConsumerAffairs.com posted a story claiming that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has an ongoing investigation into NUTRO® pet food. This is not true. We have confirmed with the FDA’s division responsible for regulating pet food, the Center for Veterinary Medicine, that there is no current or ongoing investigation of Nutro Products, Inc.

We want to assure our consumers, associates, retailers, and all those who feed NUTRO® products to their pets that our products are safe and conform to the standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S Department of Agriculture and the Association of American Feed Control Officials. All NUTRO® products undergo rigorous quality assurance testing beginning with raw ingredients and ending with testing finished products. This includes testing to confirm that no melamine, mold toxins, or pathogenic bacteria are detected in any NUTRO® pet foods.

For the past year, ConsumerAffairs.com, an “independent Web-based consumer news and resource center,” not affiliated with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission or Consumer Reports, has been selectively posting consumer complaints and authoring its own statements that draw false links between isolated instances of illness and death among pets, and the consumption of NUTRO® pet food products.

In February of 2009, a ConsumerAffairs.com posting alleged that a class action lawsuit against Nutro Products in relation to pet health issues was being researched by a law firm. We have not received notification of a class action lawsuit against Nutro Products.

In June of 2008, ConsumerAffairs.com falsely claimed that NUTRO® pet foods may have been the cause of pet health issues in a number of specific cases. In an August 2008 update to that posting, ConsumerAffairs.com reported that ASCPA veterinary toxicologist, Dr. Steven Hansen, concluded after an in depth review that the complaints appear to be random, non-pet food related health issues.

While consumer concerns about NUTRO® product quality are rare, we take every complaint seriously. When we learn of an issue, we work with consumers to obtain information and request that samples of any product in question be submitted for testing at an independent facility. An in-depth review is performed to determine if an issue does exist. Consumers with questions or concerns about NUTRO® products are encouraged to contact our Consumer Services Department at 1-800-833-5330.

Nutro Products, Inc. remains committed to the quality, safety and performance of all our pet food brands. As we have for over 80 years, we strive to deliver the finest natural products to our customers and their pets.

Hope this gets the facts straight! Nutro is not being investigated by the FDA & is tested for quality assurance to assure that is safe for you and your pet!

FDA: 'No Investigation into NUTRO Pet Food'

Last Update: 6:59 pm
(WXYZ) - There has been a lot of web buzz about an article posted on Consumer Affairs' web site regarding the safety of Nutro Pet Food. Action News has talked with the Food and Drug Administration and they insist there is no "investigation" underway.

An FDA spokesperson says, "Normally, we do not confirm or deny the existence of an investigation. In this situation, though, it's unfair to the company to leave the implication out there, so I want to state that there is NO INVESTIGATION currently underway into NUTRO products."

Rumors that the food was making pets sick quickly circulated on the internet because of the report, but Nutro is assuring consumers that their pet food is safe.

NUTRO also released this statement to concerned consumers:

On April 20, ConsumerAffairs.com posted a story claiming that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has an ongoing investigation into NUTRO® pet food. This is not true. We have confirmed with the FDA’s division responsible for regulating pet food, the Center for Veterinary Medicine, that there is no current or ongoing investigation of Nutro Products, Inc.
