I know that there was a post earlier this week about this but I just got an email to further back everything up...... THis email came from my local bully breed rescue!
Here is some of the info there was way to many stories to post about dogs that have been affected but there is a link to I am fixing to look at it.
but if anyone wants me to email this to them just pm me you email addy.

Email I received:::


NutroMax is now killing animals who are being fed the food, and the company is not acknowledging it,
PLEASE pass this along to all rescues....

Nutro Pet Foods

Lin of Fresno CA (03/17/08)
I too called Nutro and spoke to a rep in consumer services. She said she had not heard of any problems with the food. She is blaming the shipping and storing of the food. She did tell me to send 4 cups in for testing, which I am going to do. I'm heartsick about this.

Yea, that was pretty much what was being told to the person who posted this on my mailing list...Absolutely nothing from the company, which to me, spells guilt..I may be wrong on this, but when the formula was changed, it wasn't stated, so most people were unaware of anything until after purchasing

Interesting, I have Tyson on Nutro right now.  I will be switching immediately.  I was told there was a mix up with shipping, and that is why some products were not availble at this time.  I never knew of something acutally being wrong with the food. Oh my.

Well we are on our 2nd bag since they changed the apperance of the bags, and I checked since it had a new look if it was a new formula and there wasnt anything on the bag.  I just thought it was taking a while for him to get adjusted bc we went from nutro maxx puppy to nutro maxx natural adult.  So I guess I will be bying  a different food now!

I may be wrong on this as well, but I think there was a packaging date that all these cases had in common, let me go back and see if I can find that, but I'm with you, better to be safe

For pups under 2 stick with the salmon aka Pacific Stream

With older dogs then any other forumla is fine.

Its a great grainless kibble, with a great price tag too!
I just did a search to see where the closest place to me to purchase this was..... and LOL my vet sells it
Yeah.  I think that is what I am going to switch to.

I found it at the same place I currently shop for Tyson, so that is awesome.  I will be switching tonight.

Thank you for the initial post, very much appreciated.

I officially switched Tyson over this weekend.  I went with the Tasts of the Wild Pacific Stream, he loves it and seems to be doing well on it.  I hope this goes well with his sensitive tummy!

You might try Royal Canin.  Deuce loves it.  The thing that I really like about it is that when they are older there is a boxer spacific food that they can eat after 15 months since they have sensative stomachs

I'm really annoyed because my favorite pet store has sold out to Nutro.  They have an entire shelving unit devoted to it and they have a saleslady there everyday trying to get people to switch to Nutro.  If she sees you looking at dog food and she thinks you don't know what you want, she immediately comes up and tries to sell Nutro.  She did this once to me.  I asked her if there was corn, wheat or soy in it because I have boxers and they shouldn't be given those products.  She said oh, ok, and walked away, lol.
