The Tip Of The Iceberg
The label on your pet food or treat may conceal a little lie – and this lie could cost your
pet his health or even his life. There is something inherently wrong with most processed
foods that pet owners are unaware of. The heating and processing that these foods
undergo create a fundamental change that could have dangerous ramifications – it renders
the food essentially dead. What goes into the food is not what comes out once it is
heated, sterilized, irradiated and extruded and nearly all dog foods will not meet AAFCO
standards once they are heated. As a consequence, the vitamins and minerals must be
added back in for the food to pass AAFCO requirements.
Enter The Premix
Back in 2007, the melamine that was poisoning dogs and cats was not added directly to
the pet foods – it was found in the premix. The Chinese manufacturers added it to their
premix to boost the protein content as cheaply as possible. Only when dogs and cats
started dying – and the FDA was forced to begin testing the foods – did anyone become
aware of the fact.
What made the recall so large was that it wasn’t limited to a single food manufacturer.
Because they nearly all must rely on premixes, a large number of pet food manufacturers
that purchased the same premix were affected. What this means is that switching your
pet from one food to another doesn't’t necessarily mean you have made any difference at
all if your new food purchases the same premix.
How do you know if your food contains premix?
Look at the label.
On the right is a label from what many people consider a high-end kibble. See those
vitamins, minerals and long chemical names that are listed at the bottom?
Those very likely came from a premix and that premix was very likely manufactured
overseas. If the premix is not added to the food, your dog would become ill and under-
nourished from eating the nutritionally dead contents. If the premix is added to the
food, you are relying on foreign safety standards and are essentially playing roulette with
your dog’s or your cat’s health.
Compare that label to the ingredients of a quality commercial food like lamb meat, lamb
bone, lamb blood, eggs, lamb green tripe, lamb liver, broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, silver
beet (spinach), cabbage, apples, pears, lamb hearts ,lamb kidneys, garlic.
Which food do you think is safer for your pet?
The premix danger is very real because nearly every premix is manufactured overseas
where production costs are low and standards are even lower. The frightening part is
that pet owners can’t tell if the premix in their food comes from China because it does
not have to be listed on the label. The only way to know is to phone the manufacturer and
ask if the premix is made in the US or overseas.
Made In The USA
If you have made the phone call and found out that your pet food’s premix has been
manufactured in the US, don’t start feeling all warm and fuzzy just yet.
The individual synthetic vitamins and minerals that are in that made-in-the-US premix
are almost all manufactured in India or China so it may or may not be a safe option after
all. In the end, some pet food manufacturers do their best to source out the safest
premixes possible – but it is difficult for them to determine where the individual
ingredients originated from and what quality control measures were put in place.
Who’s Watching The Hen House?
The million dollar question is, if pet food manufacturers can’t prove the origin of their
premixes, why don’t they test every batch of food?
The answer might shock you: it is so cost prohibitive that it’s actually cheaper for them
to pay the lawsuits from our dead pets than it is to test their product.
In January 2011, the FDA finally stepped in with their Food Safety Modernization Act.
Some provisions took effect immediately but to date have had a minimal impact on most
pet food manufacturers.
FSMA provisions already in effect include emergency FDA access to a company’s records
and mandatory recall authority for the FDA if a company refuses to voluntarily recall a
product. The agency also has to find “reasonable probability” the product is adulterated
and that consumption of the food will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
As part of the focus on preventive controls, FSMA is planning an FDA inspection schedule.
High-risk facilities, which FDA has yet to define, will be inspected at least every three
years, while any facility not deemed high risk will be inspected at least every five years.
Any sort of complaint or safety problem will increase the likelihood of more frequent
inspections or re-inspections, for which the company will probably have to cover the costs.
As part of FSMA’s Foreign Supplier Verification Program, every importer must establish
a plan that verifies the foreign supplier complies with a hazard analysis and preventive
It remains to be seen how much influence the FSMA will have on pet food manufacturers
but, as of today, nothing much has been done yet. Because the FSMA also applies to
human foods and food-animal feeds, it remains to be seen how much time and effort will
be spent inspecting pet foods in the years to come.
What You Can Do
In the meantime, it’s likely safe to assume that virtually nobody is actively protecting
your pet from poisoned pet foods. The safest thing you can do for you pet is to feed him
a raw or home prepared diet – or a commercial diet that doesn't’t contain premixes.
Maria Ringo, founder of Sojourner Farms, one of the first commercially available raw
food mixture, and Carna4, a synthetic-free kibble, recommends the following steps to
minimize the risk of commercial foods and treats:
Seek out companies that are transparent about testing for toxins. Make sure they test
both ingredients and finished batches for mycotoxins and bacteria before it is packaged.
And if, for example, you are concerned about mercury levels in the salmon in your pet
food, ask the company if they test for that, too.
Look for products free of synthetic ingredients of any kind. Vitamins from food are
hardier than those made in test tubes. Read the ingredients panel to spot the chemicals
usually listed at the end, likely made in unregulated offshore facilities.
Feed products with only table-grade food ingredients, e.g. Federally inspected for human
consumption, to reduce the risk of bacterial and viral pathogens like salmonella. This
applies to all products including frozen and dehydrated meats.
In the meantime, if you want to avoid the dangers of foods manufactured in China, you
must look beyond the label. Do your homework and ask the manufacturer the hard
