BREAKING NEWS: Dry Dog Food (Nutra Nuggets) Not On Recall List Test Positive For Melamine
A central California vet is reporting that tests on a bag of Nutra Nuggets-brand dog food purchased from Costco tested positive for melamine. Nutra Nuggets is not on any current recall list. We are working on getting more specifics from the vet.
Nutra Nuggets is a brand of Premium Edge Pet Foods and is made by Diamond Pet Foods. A month ago, Diamond claimed that they did not use rice protein concentrate in their own foods. Dozens of brands have been recalled due to cross-contamination of pet food ingredients.
Veterinarian Dr. Matt Humason says â€œWe began asking questionsâ€¦we found the dogs all ate the same food from the same store at the same timeâ€¦ so we sent a sample to get it tested and it came back positive with melamine.â€
