Regarding Nutro recall,
FTC says that consumers should go to consumer complaint page and submit a complaint form. Here is link to the page:http://www.ftc.gov/ftc/cmplanding.shtm
I couldn't access the form online, so I called and submitted my complaint over the phone.
The FTC representative said to call and report the problem; the more complaints, the higher the priority, and the faster they'll take a look at it.
Here're the issues:
1. Consumer Affairs website has 800, or so, complaints of dog/cat illness and death.
2. Only some cat food has been recalled (so what's causing the dog complaints).
3 Nutro is saying "No complaints".
4. Recalled food is still on shelves and being sold.
5. Vets have not been informed of the recall.
6. When you call Nutro, they give you a number.
7. When you call FDA, no one answers, no one returns calls.
8. The media isn't covering the story well (who cares about cat food?), so people are still using the food.
Without being able to view the form, not sure what other info you guys may need. LOL, from the posts here, I don't believe you'll have any trouble. Just let me know.
I don't get the denial part. Many people contacted Nutro, and have the emails to prove it. It may (repeat, may) have something to do with assigning a Class (as in Class I, Class II, Class III). It's my understanding (may be wrong), that when death/injury are involved, it's Class I. At least that's how the FDA explained it to me in 2007.
Any questions, please ask.
