Metal Fragments Found by U.S. FDA on Some Pedigree® Dog Food Bags
Here's one news that concerns dog food that we must all be aware:
[Image: images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRdggnx6RmFdCz5vuvlSut...VwkudlIdxw]

The US FDA ordered recall on some of the packages of the dog food brand Pedigree®. The contaminated bags were allegedly sold between August 18 to 25 at Dollar General Stores in Vicksburg, Magnolia as well as other Dollar stores in Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee. The FDA report said the affected bags were processed in a single Pedigree® manufacturing facility. The said facility was now shut down pending investigation and resolution. The small metal fragments FDA said could have entered in the bags during the production stage and not embedded in the food itself but just the same can still pose risk and injury if consumed. The FDA identified the affected Pedigree® product as the 15-pound bag of Pedigree ® Adult Nutrition Dry Dog Food. FDA further noted that no other Pedigree ® products and variants are affected. FDA advised the buying public to discard the dog food at once or return to its retailer for a full refund. The Pedigree® Dog Food brand was owned and manufactured by American global food conglomerate, Mars, Inc.

RE: Metal Fragments Found by U.S. FDA on Some Pedigree® Dog Food Bags
The good ting here is that the dog food itself was not contaminated, only the bags. It seems like we have a lot of occasions of dog and cat food either having salmonella, or some other ingredient that is contaminated, or just does not even belong in pet food.
None of the brands can be excluded from this, becasue we have had reports of contamination of some of the really expensive brands of dog food, and not just the "bargain brands" of food.
About all that a person can do is look online or on the news for information that a certain brand or type of pet food is not safe to feed your pet.
We have had a lot of re-calls of food that is meant for people to eat as well. That food is recalled, and then usually sold to the dog food companies, which re-cook it to kill the harmful bacteria, and then turn it into dog food.
Sometimes , it is simply cooked again and used in canned foods (like chile con carne or beef stew) that we ourselves eat.

Yeah. And good to note that FDA and media were always on their toes to keep the public aware and well informed. Smile
