Please share this information with anyone you know that uses this product.

In the past (2008) I have written about Nutro being a problem dog food for numerous consumers, making dogs ill and even deaths which pet owners believe to be attributed to Nutro. Earlier this year the FDA did confirm an investigation into Nutro regarding the unesplianed illnesses and deaths surrounding their products.  As far as I know, no records have been released regarding the investigation.

Personally, I wouldn’t trust Nutro.  There have been complaints on top of complaints on top of complaints and from Nutro, only denials and random recalls of certain products.
