bigger and more important impact would be to take on the entire food industry.

Get the ANTIBIOTICS out of meat that YOU and your dog consume.

Enjoy chicken again.

Except that Iams refused a recall until they were ordered to do so, long after they knew that batches were contaminated and killing animals.
BB similarly has been in the hot seat for years now, and has done nothing.

Consumers are prone to falling for marketing campaigns, it's a problem.

I don't eat much in the way of packaged or processed food because I don't trust it. And since I don't have the knowledge or the money to feed raw, I rely on some integrity with these dog food companies and it seems sadly lacking.

Hormones are added as well. And all the High Fructose corn syrup and its anonymous names they use to disguise it that's in mostly everything people eat in the USA. Than we have Glycol that the FDA allows. Add in all the dyes in most foods and we have some pretty unhealthy foods here. I have to use a magnifying glass to study everything I buy at a supermarket.

oh yes -- propylene glycol --- anti freeze in food .
hormones - glyphosphate residue from that monster roundup -- in case you do
not know https://www.canceractive.com/cancer-...nk.aspx?n=3426

this kibble company prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients -- so what does that say

with other companies they are all at the mercy of vitamin pre-mix packs which they all source
from China

I've opened a thread to discuss pet food/treat regulations in Canada.

If anyone has information about this, please share on that thread.
Thanks!

Iím just amazed that the company filing this lawsuit against Champion states Pedigree as a 5 star pet food.

As mentioned previously, you can file a lawsuit for anything. Doesnít make it truthful or accurate. But it certainly does hurt image when people donít do the research and learn what is actually happening.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

Yeah I know stuff can easily happen and it does effect image. a tough business but hopefully this gets worked out. It is why though I am hesitant on using other foods only to mix it up a bit. I know there foods with more proteins and less peas, potatoes but I do trust Fromm and just add some fresh food in or dehydrated patties. I also there food choices up with honest kitchen at times. It is scary out there and all the things in food not to mention water and air is all nutty.

Iams likely did a cost-benefit analysis and decided they'd have to be forced into an expensive recall rather than do it voluntarily. What was the contaminant and how was it killing animals? And when did this incident you describe happen?

Yes, consumers do rely on the integrity of companies producing pet foods and the robustness of their quality systems. We (consumers) always have to do our own risk analyses, weighing trust vs convenience, looking for evidence of quality product in the health of our pets. Luckily, most times all goes well. In the rare instances where it doesn't, results can be devastating.

I believe 2007, melamine contamination if I remember, subsequent lawsuit revealed that for months they were aware of the issue and had paid off some people to evade a lawsuit but never issued a recall or fixed the problem as it was not in their own words a widespread enough problem to make it cost effective. Cheaper to pay the grieving owners.

I think I remember this and a few other issues with Melamine contamination, mainly from Chinese products. Paying off people is never a good sign!
