Nutro Products Inc.  has denied that the company is being investigated by the FDA despite an anonymous FDA official affirming the investigation, according to an  article on www.consumeraffairs.com .

But a spokesperson from the FDA denied the investigation as well, according to an  article from Action News Detroit .

"Normally, we do not confirm or deny the existence of an investigation," the spokesperson said to Action News. "In this situation, though, it's unfair to the company to leave the implication out there, so I want to state that there is no investigation currently underway into Nutro products."

Rumors have been circulating on the Internet claiming that Nutro made pets sick, but Nutro is assuring consumers that its petfood is safe.
