Nutro Recalls Selected Puppy Food Due to Possible Plastic Contamination

Web: Nutro Products

Customer Service: (800) 833-5330

Small pieces of melted plastic were recently found in the production line of select varieties of NUTRO®  dry dog and cat food products. The product was retrieved from distributors. Three puppy food products reached some PetSmart and Petco stores in AZ, CA, CO, HI, NM, NV, TX and UT.

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

Nutro believes it is highly unlikely that any pieces of plastic made it into finished product. However, upon learning of the incident, Nutro voluntarily retrieved all potentially affected products.

Consumers who believe they have purchased potentially affected product should return it to their retailer for a full refund or exchange for another NUTRO®  product, or contact the Nutro Products Consumer Care team at 1-800-833-5330.
