More on pet food

I wanted to share this HuffPo article today. It is an insightful look at the pet food industry and pet food marketing.

Looking For The Safest, Healthiest Pet Food? Good Luck With That.

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.

  1. Thanks for finding this. I shared it on Facebook too. People need to know how little the FDA really does to inspect and made sure our food and our pet’s food is safe. US Government is controlled by big Corporations. Very scarey.
