Nutro has decided to withdraw ALL canned/pouched food no matter what the
sell by date that contain wheat gluten. They have accurately assessed (
many days too late IMHO) that consumers are confused and worried sick. And
a bit TIRED too, I might add. = :-z

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- 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."..........
