The five types of toxic mold are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Fusarium, Aspergillus, and Stachybotrys. They can cause annoying symptoms like a coughing fit or, worst-case scenario, neurologic problems, and death. If your dog has eaten moldy food, you may notice a decreased appetite, vomiting, and changes to bowel movements.

As a consumer we will never know what was agreed to and signed on the dotted line. I find most customers know when the formulas change just by how their dog or cat reacts to food or treats. Some animals end up with digestive upsets such as diarrhea and others end up with food sensitivities or allergy type symptoms. Our animals are good indicators of when companies change their formulas without notifying us!

Nestlé Purina Petcare (/pjʊˈriːnə/), or simply Purina, is an American subsidiary of the Swiss corporation Nestlé, based in St. Louis, Missouri. It produces and markets pet food, treats, cat and dog litter. Some of its pet food brands include Purina Pro Plan, Purina Dog Chow, Friskies, Beneful and Purina One. The company was formed in 2001 by combining Nestlé's Friskies Petcare Company with Ralston Purina, which acquired it for $10.3 billion. As of 2012[update], it is the second-largest pet food company globally (with the first being Mars Petcare), and the largest in the United States.

In 1894, William H. Danforth partnered with George Robinson and William Andrews, as they entered the business of feeding farm animals by founding the Robinson-Danforth Commission Company in St. Louis, Missouri. The name was changed to Ralston Purina in 1902.[2] This was the same year (1902) that Ralston Purina built their first building at the current headquarters, 800 Chouteau Ave, St. Louis, Missouri.[3]Nestlé Purina Petcare was formed in December 2001,[4] when Nestlé acquired Ralston Purina for $10.3 billion and merged it with Nestlé's pet food business, Friskies PetCare Company.[4] Ralston had marketed the Dog Chow, Cat Chow and Pro Plan pet food brands, while Nestlé produced Friskies and Alpo brand pet foods.[5]

The merger was opposed by consumer advocates, such as the Consumer Federation of America, due to anti-trust concerns.[5] The two companies combined would become the largest pet food brand by market-share with a 45 percent share of the cat food market. The Federal Trade Commission approved the merger after the Meow Mix and Alley Cat brands from Ralston were sold to J.W. Childs Equity Partners,[5] creating the separate Meow Mix Company.[6] Ralston's St. Louis, Missouri location was chosen as the new company's North America headquarters.[4]

Nestlé Purina Petcare continued integrating the two companies through 2002.[7] It cut back dry dog food manufacturing at facilities inherited from Friskies PetCare Company in Jefferson, Wisconsin, St. Joseph, Missouri and Arden Hills, Minnesota, then moved those operations to manufacturing facilities acquired from Ralston.[8][9] Expanded manufacturing facilities were planned in Dunkirk, New York[10] and the St. Joseph location was later expanded for wet-food production.[11] In Asia it shifted from a "dealer system" to managing its own distribution.[12] In 2004 Nestlé Purina merged its North American and Latin America operations into a Nestlé Purina PetCare Americas division.[13]

In 2003, Nestlé Purina Petcare formed a partnership with the Canine Health Foundation to advance veterinary research.[14] The following year the company donated 80 tons of pet food to pets affected by Hurricane Charley in Florida and donated $100,000 to local animal shelters.[15] Nestlé Purina Petcare grew from about 11 percent of Nestlé's revenues in 2001, to one-third by 2005.[16] By 2006 it was the largest market-share holder in the pet food industry with 32 percent of the market.[17]

In October 2022, Purina announced its partnership with Spot Pet which sought to catalyze ensuring the wellbeing of pets.[41] By the end of 2022, Purina celebrated its 50 years of active production at its pet food factory in Dunkirk.[42]

In May 2014, Nestlé Purina Petcare began a legal dispute with Blue Buffalo regarding its advertising practices. Blue Buffalo advertised that its products contain no meat byproduct or corn, whereas Purina said independent lab tests confirmed that they do.[44] Blue Buffalo made similar allegations against Purina in a counter-suit less than a week later.[45] It also alleged Purina was engaging in what it characterized as a "smear campaign".[46] The National Advertising Review Board and the Advertising Self-Regulatory Council found that Blue Buffalo's advertising was misleading and its claims that competitors were hiding information about their ingredients were unsubstantiated.[46][47] Blue Buffalo said it disagreed, but would obey the ruling.[47]

In 2005, Nestlé Purina Petcare voluntarily recalled all of its dry pet food produced from a plant in La Encrucijada, Venezuela after an internal investigation verified contaminants that were causing illnesses in pets.[16] According to Fortune Magazine, in 2007 the pet food market "plunged into turmoil" due to the widespread discovery of contaminated ingredients.[53] During this period, Nestle Purina voluntarily recalled some of its Alpo Prime Cuts in Gravy product[54][55] in the US that contained wheat gluten from China contaminated with melamine.[56]

In August 2013 Purina recalled some of its Purina ONE Beyond dog food, because of one bag that was found to contain salmonella.[57] In 2012 a consumer sued Nestlé Purina Petcare when his pet died after eating Waggin' Train treats.[58] The Food and Drug Administration received more than 900 reports from grieving pet owners that alleged the treat was causing illness or death in their pets due to chicken products from China.[59][60] The FDA had issued warnings regarding these ingredients, but lab tests repeatedly confirmed there were no contaminants. Later that year, another consumer started a petition on asking retailers to voluntarily stop carrying the product. The petition attracted 60,000 signatures.[59] The following year, Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek dog treats were voluntarily taken off the market temporarily after the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets identified trace amounts of antibiotic residue, which is allowed in Europe and China, but not approved in the US.[61] In early 2014, a $6.5 million settlement was reached, pending approval by the court.[62] According to The Washington Post, the company later re-introduced the brands after "revamping its manufacturing process and overhauling its supply chain".[63]

According to a SWOT analysis by MarketLine, Nestlé Purina Petcare's pet food brands that contribute substantially to revenue include Purina, Purina Dog Chow, Friskies, Purina Beneful and Purina ONE.[64] Some brands, such as Alpo are intended for budget shoppers, while others like Purina ONE and Beneful cost more and are for health or ingredient conscious consumers.[65] Purina ONE has been its fastest-growing brand.[15]

The company introduced an appetizer cat food, Fancy Feast Appetizers, in 2009.[66] A Purina Pro Plan line for senior dogs was introduced in 2010. It contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) for brain function and has whole grains for digestion.[18][67] A grain-free product, Purina ONE Beyond, was introduced in 2011.[68] Purina Pro Plan Sport, which contains extra fat and protein and is intended for athletic dogs, was made available in 2013.[69] In 2014 Purina introduced a product for the growing Brazilian market called Ravena, which used locally available ingredients, such as acerola and jabuticaba fruits.[70] Purina-branded accessories, such as training pads, beds, leashes and cleaners began being sold in 2011 under the Purina PetGear name through brand licensing agreements with other manufacturers.[71][72]

In 2006, Nestlé Purina Petcare introduced a sponsored email application, Doggie-Mail, that could send messages online through a talking dog.[75] In 2009 it sponsored the site developed by AOL, which hosted crowd-sourced pet videos, tips, Q&As and other content about pet ownership.[76] Purina also sponsored Martha Stewart's pet tips site, Living Omnimedia.[77] The company introduced an advertising campaign for the Alpo brand with the slogan "Real dogs eat meat". In the ad, over-pampered pets were "rescued" and fed Alpo, implying that pets needed to stay in touch with their primal nature by eating real meat.[78] In 2009 it released a free iPhone app called "petcentric places" that allows users to map local pet-related locations, like dog parks or pet-friendly hotels.[79] In 2010, Purina released a branded Facebook game called Purina Pet Resort, where players manage a virtual pet resort.[80] 041b061a72
