New Fort Smith pet food plant opens

"Leaders in Fort Smith are celebrating a new $80 million Mars Petcare plant that's expected to bring 200 jobs to the area.

"The company says the plant, which opened Wednesday, is the world's first sustainable pet food manufacturing facility. The 305,000-square-foot plant will make Mars' Cesar Canine Cuisine for small dogs. The plant has also received a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold certification.

"Mars says the plant will recycle water, reduce energy use and protect against erosion and light pollution.

"The plant received $2.2 million from Gov. Mike Beebe's quick action closing fund, designed to attract businesses to state, along with other state and local incentives."

Maybe their Nutro Victorville plant was trying to recycle?  Roll Eyes

"Q:  I heard that there may be plastic in some NUTRO products.  Is this true?

"A:  Small pieces of melted plastic were recently found in the production line of select varieties of NUTRO dry dog and cat food products.

"Upon discovery of the melted plastic, we immediately halted manufacturing and performed a thorough search of all equipment.  We identified the source as a worker’s “bump cap,” similar to a hard hat, which inadvertently made its way into our manufacturing process."

Must have cooked that kibble at a really high temperature to "melt" the plastic.

I wonder if it wasn't properly pulverized pieces of melamine........ Tongue
