Here We Go Again! Another Recall

You know, when those other countries said about bringing down the USA from 'within', do you think they meant from 'within' each of us? LOL. It's sure starting to feel like that, all the way down to our pets. Today another Huge meat proccessor of many brands, is doing a voluntary recall of people food and pet food. Castleberry's, who is responsible for many brands of chili, beef stew, corned beef hash, and Natural Balance Dog Food thinks that a machine malfunction may be responsible for botulism in their products. (See AOL News for a list of brands and products being recalled).

The first thing I did when I read the story is make sure the corned beef hash I bought for my mother wasn't one of their brands. That's all I need is to poison my own mother! No one would ever believe it was an accident. LOL. Me, who laughs in the face of food poisoning and bought Moran ground Beef at Albertson's yesterday, was a little worried.

What's really sad is our pets can't really tell us. I'm not a Vet. If Baby, my American Eskimo dog gets sick, I just figure she'll go eat some grass and get over it. The poor thing really has to be showing some serious symptoms for me to take her the Vet, and then it might be too late! So far, the FDA has received about 18000 calls, half of which the pet owner alleges death of a pet that may be due to pet food. It's scary to find out brands like Iams, Eukanuba, and other well known brands for being upper quality (and usually more expensive) are not what we the public think they are. Since all this has been going on, I have taken a solid look at the ingredients in just a couple of the top foods. You may be as surprised as I was. Look here:

Main Ingredients of Iams Iam Chunk: Chicken, corn meal, ground whole grain soghum, chicken by-product meal, chicken fat, dried beef pulp, natural chicken flavor, fish meal, potassium chloride

Science Diet: Chicken, ground whole grain corn, ground whole grain sorghum, ground wheat, chicken by-product meal, soybean meal, animal fat, corn gluten meal, brewer's rice

And then there is Nutripet: chicken meal, ground brown rice, ground white rice, chicken fat, dried beef pulp, dried egg product, fish meal, flaxseed, dried carrots, dried peas..

Because our pets need a lot of the Omegas and Protein with less fat, just like we do.
