Thanks for the post Bumpurrr. Unfortunately there is at least one error on her "report". Mars does not make food for Nutro. Mars owns Nutro but does not make food for them.

Nutro owns and operates their own manufacturing plants and can trace every ingredient to it's source. Nutro also does 600 quality and safety checks on each batch before it is released. Nutro is also AFIA certified and 8 times above the AAFCO standards. I do not know about any of the other companies listed under Mars but that is the Nutro story.

I didn't write the list, just passing on info, I came across. wave

There was a "discussion" on the Blue Buffalo site, as to who, exactly, mfg the food, BB never responed. But I knew some of it, and others that knew some, we all put it together, little bits of information at a time. I like to know this stuff, in case, I have to do a "road trip" mol. laugh out loud

You should contact her, and tell her. I can't speak for the other companies, but I know, Blue Buffalo is right, and it included the last bit of information, we were looking for.

way to go

Thank you purry much, Bumpurr. I'm throwing away my taste of the wild. Cats don't like it anyway, only ate 2 cans. Our regular food is blue buffalo.

If you bought it at Petsmart or Petco, you can take it back to the store, and exchange it. wave

Oh dear why do they have to put cellulose and Sweet Potato in there??shrug
we will not be buying this food!
The Cellulose makes it seem like there is more protein in it, its just a filler (sawdust) and Sweet Potato only raises the cats glycemic index.
Oh evay!!! frown
