EdnaAtNutro @cvec Hi! I’m with Nutro. Re: plastic-During a maint. shutdown, a bump cap inadvertently made its way into our mfg. process equipment….

These were separate tweets I aggregated from Edna:

Nutro audited 3000 bags of potentially affected finished product that never left our mfg site.Out of abundance of caution, Nutro voluntarily retrieved pot. affected product in a small number of PS/PC [PetsMart/PetCo] stores Consumers who have purchased pot. affected product should return it to their retailer or contact Nutro’s Consumer Care @ 800- 833-5330

And this came from Christie Keith and her source from a phone call  to PetsMart:

The affected items were Nutro Ultra Puppy 4.5 lb bags and Nutro Natural Choice Chicken, Rice and Oatmeal Puppy Small Bites in 5lb bags. While we have not been notified of any injury or illness related to these products, Pet Parents who have purchased these products should immediately stop feeding the food to their pets.

You can take your food bags back to either store for a refund if you have any of the above listed products.  Maybe by tomorrow morning nutroproducts will have an official announcement available.
