Default Pet food warning (NUTRO)

Mods please leave this here for maximum exposure please.
This information is a little old ( 2 weeks) but better late than never. While I was out of the country my buddy Jesse was taking care of my Dalmation MJ, he phoned me in Amsterdam to tell me there had been a recall of Nutro pet food of a certain variety and then he did some reading up on it and found out there were a slew of lawsuits against the parent company for pet deaths. There is so much information out there that I don't know what to believe but if there is this much hoopla going on I want to side with caution and switched over to the Blue Buffalo brand, it makes MJ a little gassy but I think it will be ok in a couple of weeks when she is accustomed to it.
I am attaching a few links, again I cant verify any of this stuff but I would hate for anything to happen to any of our pets so if you are currently still using Nutro then educate yourself and make your own decision.

I was also told that most of these problems are stemming from use of Chinese beef but I cannot verify that so take it with a grain of salt.

Damn, you think they would have learned after the melamine problems. We thought it was safe to go back and have been using the Nutro ULTRA.

Thanks for the heads up.

We had our pit bull pups on Nutro puppy food until August when we switched them to adult food. The male started having diarrhea so we switched to the Nutro Sensitive Stomach food and mixed in their canned food. His stools have firmed up now but I'll keep a close watch on his anal emissions lol(I have to I'm the one who walks them and picks up after them). His sister doesn't have any problems on Nutro.

I use the 100ct bags and my wife bought a diaper bag contraption that has a hole in the top with a lid that pops up when you step on the opener at the bottom, It uses a round liner thing so the bags go right down into the bag when the lid is opened. It has a cutter blade so the day before trash pickup I just open the top cut the bag tie it off and put it in the trash bag. Simple and easy cleanup.
