According to this article on the Veterinary Information Network, Nutro is currently not under investigation, despite the ConsumerAffairs.com claim to the contrary. The article quotes Laura Alvey, deputy director of communications for the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine.
Which should make everyone feel better, right?
Right. Except that there are records of hundreds of people across the Internet complaining about Nutro food and blaming it for their pet's illnesses, particularly since their 2007 acquisition by Mars, Inc.
And people still want to know why the Freedom of Information Act request regarding Nutro was denied, when the wording on the denial document was, “The document (s) constitute record (s) complied for law enforcement purposes, the disclosure of which could reasonably be expected to interfere with law enforcement proceedings.”
And why hasn't Nutro done more to directly address the number of complaints that people are placing all over the Internet regarding their food, rather than going after ConsumerAffairs.com for being a repository for the complaints? Nutro could easily decide to get out in front of this and reach out to the folks who are concerned, but thus far they haven't. Why not?
Something tells me this is a long way from over...
