Itchmo reports on a dog food sent in by a vet that contains melamine:

A central California vet is reporting that tests on a bag of Nutra
Nuggets-brand dog food purchased from Costco tested positive for melamine.
Nutra Nuggets is not on any current recall list. We are working on getting
more specifics from the vet.

Nutra Nuggets is a brand of Premium Edge Pet Foods and is made by Diamond
Pet Foods.

Update from www.itchmo.com:

We have been able to confirm that Nutra Nuggets (made by Diamond Pet Foods)
is recalling their 40 pound Lamb Meal and Rice Dry Formula for Dogs. The
contaminated batch’s product code is #NLR0404 and the Best Buy dates are
October 9-10, 2008. We spoke with a vet at the Nutra Nuggets recall line and
he said that so far, they had only heard of 2 cases in which the dogs had
renal diseases (confirming the news report from yesterday).

He said that it was due to cross-contamination due to food being produced
for Natural Balance (Natural Balance had recalls in mid-April). At this
time, he said that no other food produced by Nutra Nuggets was being
recalled.

(Updated) Itchmo readers and PetsitUSA found out that the contaminated Nutra
Nuggets were sold at Costco locations in CA, WA, OR, AZ, and NV.
