Denaturants in raw food

Perhaps this topic/question has been dealt with before but I would greatly appreciate any info regarding the addition of a denaturing agent to raw meat/organ/bone.

I understand that any meat/organ/bone not intended for human consumption must be treated with a denaturing agent per the USDA. From my quick bit of research. It would seem that these denaturing agents used on meat/organ/bone intended for pet consumption do not contain any toxic components per the companies which produce these products.......but that's what the companies suggest. I wonder if there is any veracity to their claims.

I am having second thoughts about feeding my pooch a raw diet which might have meat/bone/organ which have been denatured via the addition of a denaturing component.

Your thoughts and comments are appreciated,

the case here is that meat intended for human consumption and that intended for animal use are not sold in the same market place . The key word is intended . People do go and buy cases of raw chicken frames from local butcher counters and use it for the dogs . I do .The intended use though is for human consumption in the making of broth or soup stocks .
When meat is ground for animal only consumption it has to be packaged and identified with label "not for human consumption" and or marked with a identity code known to the industry and inspectors such as a faint greying with edible charcoal , a dusting on top or a vein going through it . This was to make it off putting by sight , and to prevent unscrupulous vendors from selling a lessor price and quality meat product to customers for their own use.
No mistake, no being able to substitute.
It does not denature or spoil the food one little bit.
Charcoal is safe.
