Nutro Products Orders Removal of All Wet Pet Food Products Made by Menu Foods with Wheat Gluten

Nutro Dry Foods, Biscuits and Treats are NOT manufactured by Menu Foods
and are NOT Affected by Recall

 

City of Industry, Calif. (April 10, 2007)– Earlier today, Menu Foods expanded its recall of wet pet food products to include additional wet pet foods suspected of containing melamine from Chinese supplied wheat gluten.

Given this new information and the confusion in the marketplace, Nutro has ordered ALL Nutro wet pouched and canned foods made with wheat gluten be removed from store shelves regardless of the date of production and asks pet owners to stop feeding those products to their pets. Nutro is taking this action even though the Menu Foods press release indicates that only certain dates of production at its plant were affected.

“Pet owners are fed up with confusing information regarding the Menu Foods recall,” said Dave Kravis, President and CEO of Nutro Products. “I had previously ordered a broader recall of affected products than what Menu Foods had suggested. Given this new information from Menu Foods, I have ordered all wet pet food products containing wheat gluten to be removed from store shelves. Our dry pet food is not made by Menu and remains unaffected by the recall.”

As a result of this new information, Nutro has suspended all shipments to retail stores of Nutro’s wet canned and pouch products that contain wheat gluten until Nutro is able to confirm their safety.

Nutro Products is asking all customers who have the following Nutro wet pet food products (which are made by Menu Foods and contain wheat gluten) regardless of “best by date,” to immediately stop feeding the products to their pets.

    • All Cat Pouch Food Products
    • Listed Cat 3.0 oz can products
    • All Dog Pouch Food Products
    • Listed Dog 12.5 oz Canned Products

View a detailed list of all recalled products.

Nutro’s products are 100% guaranteed and all returned product will be refunded. Customers should return products affected by the recall to the retail location where they purchased the product.

The Menu Foods wet pet food recall does not include Nutro’s dry pet food. Nutro’s dry pet foods are not produced by Menu Foods and do not contain wheat gluten. Nutro’s dry pet foods, biscuits and treats – over 90% of the pet food Nutro sells – are not involved in the recall and remain safe for pets to eat. Menu manufactures only wet, canned and pouch products for Nutro.

Nutro customers may check Nutro’s website ( www.nutroproducts.com ) or contact Nutro’s Consumer Hotline (800) 833-5330 for further information about its products. Nutro’s website will be updated as more information becomes available.
