Nestle Purina Pet Care Company Complaint - Bad Dog Food - Alpo Prime Cuts Wet Dog Food

Review by pastchief on 2007-04-02
SEDONA, ARIZONA -- Within the last week, i purchased a six pac of alpo prime cuts wet dog food, from the nestle purina pet carecompany. After feeding almost a can of this food to my boston terrior, i was informed by my daughter, that the stuff had been recalled. I am concerned that what i fed him might have harmed him, also, is the company planning on making restitution to consumers for this inferior product. I would like some answers from the company as to what their next step(s) will be to remedy this problem.

The recall lists have been all over the Internet. I'm surprised you would buy the wet stuff at all since most of it seems tainted. I hope your dog is okay.

...also, is the company planning on making restitution to consumers for this inferior product?. > YES , has alredy been in the news. Call the Company, number is on the product container. People who have who incurred animal doctor bills and/or lost thier pets have been re-embursed. Call the company that made the food you fed your pet.

You can return the food at petco or petsmart. I was feeding my dog and cat nutro which was recalled in the beginning and Petco took back 30 packets with no problems.

The recalled 13.2-ounce and 22-ounce ALPO Prime Cuts cans and 6-, 8-, 12- and 24-can ALPO Prime Cuts Variety Packs have four-digit code dates of 7037 through 7053, followed by the plant code 1159. Those codes follow a "Best Before Feb. 2009" date. This information should be checked on the bottom of the can or the top or side of the multi-pack cartons.

Do your cans fall within those codes and dates? Make sure you watch your pet closely for any changes in behavior, drinking more, sleeping more than usual.. etc. If your cans fall within those ranges I would bring the dog to the vet just in case.

Here's their press release:

They just added Alpo on the 30th you guys. Plus, Menu Foods doesn't make Alpo so that wouldn't been on their list. Purina used the same supplier as Menu Foods.

I still feed my pets wet because I switched them to a much better quality food (no fillers, no grain, no wheat gluten). If anyone wants suggestions for pet food, I can help! :)

I'm shocked that some of these stores have not removed these tainted dog foods off the shelves.

Yeah Skye, a few days after the whole thing started my grocery store still had this crap n their shelves! Petco and Petsmart pulled them the day the list came out. I wonder why it took Purina so long to figure out they should pull Alpo.
