Wow.  Since it's a withdrawal, not a mention anywhere- their website, or Petco, Petsmart.

Melted plastic in the bags of food? Is it melamine by any chance?

Hmmm. Wonder how many more PFCs will be conducting "withdrawls" rather than recalls. What a sneaky way to do business. Nice to know that maybe there are some puppies out there choking on melted plastic. Just nice.

Wonder if they had to use the new Reportable Food Registry....if so, it doesnt appear to be working very well....at least for the consumer and pets...and how come PetCo and Petsmart arent putting out a public notice... Angry

Google Advanced search for:
Nutro pet food voluntary withdrawal, with date, usage rights set to last week,
show this story appearing 6 days ago.
Sure didn't show up on any of the feeds I have:

http://www.google.com/search?q=Nutro+pet+food+voluntary+withdrawal&hl=en&lr=&tbo=p&num=50&tbs=qdr:w&filter=0

edited to add: This all seems to refer to May 2009 Nutro recall. This one for plastic parts does not seem to be anywhere except Twitter

Good thought:

Nothing about it at FDA, Nutro, Petco or PetSmart websites either-just looked.  Angry

http://www.nutroproducts.com/nutro-products-quality-safety.shtml

"II. NUTRO® Products Safe Manufacturing
Nutro Products maintains state-of-the-art company-owned dry kibble manufacturing facilities so we can closely monitor and inspect at virtually every step of preparation of NUTRO® products."

Tell it to Wegman's too!

Sandi,

The thing is that this shouldn't be a secret--it should be listed on all of the affected websites and also on FDA's.  Angry Angry Angry

I know Menusux, this really bothers me too.  I keep thinking about how fast puppy's eat and they could easily swallow a piece of melted plastic very quickly while they are gobbling their food.... Angry

Does anyone know, if the best by date is 09/10/10 on this food, when would it have been made?

This is also unbelievable--

http://www.nutroproducts.com/nutro-pet-food-questions.shtml

Their FAQ's page with question:

"What is the shelf life of your kibble?"

http://www.nutroproducts.com/nutro-code-date-questions.shtml#kibble

Above is the link for the "answer".  Take a look at the page and while there's information about treats, canned foods, pouched foods, and biscuits,  I see NOT ONE WORD about kibble!

If any of you can spot something on that page about dry food or kibble, kindly post it, please!

I could have sworn they used to have something about expiration dates on their kibble....hmmm.  Another question is are PetSmart and PetCo the only stores that receive this food in the 4 to 5 lb bags?  Why is this withdrawal only limited to these stores?  Undecided

This was in the thread for their dry cat food recall, JustMe had found it but its not at their site now...:

Question: What is the shelf life of your NUTRO® foods kibble?
Answer: We have perfected our system of naturally preserving our foods. Under the correct conditions, our food stays fresh for approximately 14 months. Extreme temperatures, improper storage, and other factors can affect the freshness

So it appears this food would have been made in July?
