(Melamine and cyanuric acid were found to be the deadly cause of the largest pet food recall in history in 2007.)

MELAMINE FOUND IN CAT & DOG FOOD AGAIN amine-and-cyanuric-acid-found-in-us-made-pet-food

Here are affected pet foods

The U.S. manufactured pet foods the Consumer Council found to contain aflatoxin B1 are:

1. Purina One Smart Blend Chicken & Rice Formula Adult Dog Food
2. Hill’s Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Cat Food
3. AvoDerm Natural Chicken & Herring Meal Formula Adult Cat Food

Purina told the South China Morning Post the carcinogen was an “unavoidable natural contaminant” found in grains such as corn, barley and rice. AvoDerm, stated “it had since replaced the corn in its formula that was believed to be the source of the carcinogen.”

And then the bad news continues. The Consumer Council reported their testing found melamine in:

4. Solid Gold Adult Dog Food
5. Iams Chicken Cat Food

And cyanuric acid was found in:

6. Purina Pro Plan Salmon Cat Food,/

Melamine and cyanuric acid were found to be the deadly cause of the largest pet food recall in history in 2007.

Thanks for sharing,Mazie. Mommy subscribes to The truth about pet food". It is a really good mews letter to get. It seems there are so many problems and bad ingredients in the kibbles.
I get worried too.

Well this freaks us out some, as we do use some ProPlan canned (the grain free ones) in our rotation. I guess we won't be anymore.....
