Nugget Speaks Out

I am very upset! I would use stronger words, however this is a family site. Many of you may already have heard the news of tainted pet food in North America. There is a massive recall covering as many as 51 dog food brands and 40 brands of cat food, covering 60 million cans and pouches of possibly tainted food. A federal investigation is focusing on wheat gluten as the likely source, and testing continues. This is where I have a problem. In testing, the manufacturer fed its product to 40-50 dogs and cats resulting in 7 deaths. What? How would you hoomans like it if the tables were turned. Would a bread manufacture line up 50 hoomans to eat toast if there was a possible wheat gluten problem in your food? I don't think so!

For more information visit: The company designated two phone numbers for pet owners to call: 866-463-6738 & 866-895-2708.
The Seattle PI article:

Fortunately my food is not included in the listed brands. However just to be on the safe side I have requested that Mum feed me peanut butter only for a couple of months.

Yum! Peanut Buttery goodness. I snuck this jar from Dad, and Mum thought he gave it to me. HeHeHe... Ozzy and Stewy were outside sunning. Mum says this is why I am not loosing weight.

Peanut buttery licks, Nugget

Excellent photos! I LOVE peanut butter too!

It's so scary about the pet food in the US. I am doubly glad mum started feeding me home made stuff now.

ohhhhhhhhhh peanut butter sounds like an awesome idea! I must ask mom if this could work for me too!

Love ya lots,


Hi Nugget,
We checked the recalled food products and were relieved to find our food not on the list. We too were saddened by the fact that they tested the bad food on dogs and that some of them died. What were those people thinking????

P.S. How did you manage to wangle a whole jar of peanut butter. Is it good? Sure looks like it from those great pics.
