I wanted to share this HuffPo article today. It is an insightful look at the pet food industry and pet food marketing.
There are some stats in it that you should note – particularly the rate of contamination of both raw and commercially processed foods with organisms like Listeria and Salmonella. We are all familiar with Salmonella, but Listeria is more frightening. It causes meningitis in infants (it’s the reason obstetricians recommend pregnant women avoid soft cheeses) and has a very high fatality rate. Scary bug.
I was heartened to see this article in the section where it belongs – politics.
