The following information was sent to TruthaboutPetFood.com from a Pet Owner that found “bright blue objects in two separate cans of turkey/salmon” cat food.
From Carol R…
This is just an FYI email for you; I’ve been using Wellness cat food for many years. Was very disappointed to find foreign bright blue objects in two separate cans of turkey/salmon recently. Details below.
I’m emailing this info to Wellness also.
TO: WELLNESS CAT FOOD
RE: OBJECT FOUND IN CANS OF TURKEY/SALMON
I have been using Wellness cat food for many years with good results. However, after the experience related below, I’m no longer using your product.
Two cans (bought on 2 different occasions) were found to have foreign objects in the food. Both objects were similar: what appears to be a rectangular shaped blue piece of flat plastic. In both cases it was not found on top, but was inside the food and discovered when I put the food in the dish. In both cases I covered the can and put it in the freezer.
Don’t know exact purchase dates/locations because I buy a lot of this food. It’s one of two stores: Petsmart on Foothill in Pasadena, CA or Centinela Feed on Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA.
Dates would be Dec 2010/January 2011.
