NutriSource Company Overview

NutriSource pet food is a culmination of many different brand lines over time. Darrell Nelson started Pine Lakes Feed in 1947. His son, Kenny Nelson, started Tuffy’s Dog Food Company shortly thereafter. After 39 years, they expanded to premium lines and later organic lines.

NutriSource is manufactured in Minnesota by Tuffy’s Pet Foods, Inc. In 2015, the company expanded with a new $70 million, 130,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Tuffy’s is family-owned and operated — and has been since it was founded in 1964. The company’s other brands include PureVita, Tuffy’s and Natural Planet.

Has There Ever Been A NutriSource Recall?

No. There has never been a NutriSource recall, according to our research — although the PureVita brand line, made by the same company and using the NutriSource name as part of the product packaging, did issue a recall in October 2021.

Also, in late June 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified NutriSource as one of 16 pet food brands that may be linked to heart disease in dogs and cats. None of the brands have been recalled as part of the agency’s ongoing investigation, though. Most, but not all, of the pet foods are “grain-free” and/or dry (kibble) dog food formulations. The FDA says this is a “complex scientific issue that may involve multiple factors,” and that it cannot even be certain that diet is a cause of heart problems. For full details, see our article on the subject.
