OK, so I called Merrick. Left a mesage and they called me back within 15 minutes!

They used a new chicken supplier on the beginning of 2006. This supplier did random inspections of the chicken, and when they did the inspection, installed a wing clip on the wing. It's about the size of a nickel, you won't miss it.

There is nothing wrong with the food, if you want to keep and use your food, just dump it out into a bowl and check the wings for the clip. This pertains to the 13.2 oz can only.

If you do not want to use the product, return it to your supplier for replacement or refund. You might want to wait a day or two, however, as the stores will get the packet contining the info by tomorrow, 5/02/06.

Wow! Now that's good customer service! If only Timberwolf did 1/4 as much....

And glad to hear that the food is fine, a metal clip the size of a nickel would be hard to miss. I'm surprised that they did not see those before they processed the wings.

I may be slow but I get there - a turtle's motto
