Word on the street (aka twitter) is that Nutro puppy products may contain melted plastic. Their reps are calling it a "voluntary product withdrawl", but in everyday language, its called a recall. However, Nutro does not have this information on their website..

Petsmart said:
Thank you for contacting PetSmart. Nutro has done a voluntary product withdrawal. This was done by the company for certain Nutro products and size. 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.
Because the withdrawal of these items only affects certain sized packages, you can return these to your nearest PetSmart to exchange the affected product for an alternate-sized package of the same food or a full refund.
If you have any more questions about this withdrawal, please contact Nutro customer service at 1-800-833-5330 or visit
Again, we would like to reiterate that this is a voluntary Nutro product withdrawl.
