Have we heard the last of the recall?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So it's been awhile since the recall thread has been posted to. I haven't heard anything more for awhile. So the question comes to mind, is the recall saga over? Is it now safe? I certainly hope so but I'm not quite convinced yet. Though I do have a whole bunch of Wellness that I'd love to feed. Yes I know they were not recalled but I got spooked and changed after finding out they do business with Menu..

Lets make it a poll.

Royal canin maker of sensible choice just announced two or three days ago a recall of the rest of sensible choice dry dog food ....

We know contaminated pet food was used as chicken feed at several poultry farms. Most of the chickens have already been sold and consumed.

I dont feel that it's safe to feed my kitten any wet canned food yet.... Im only feeding dry, hopefully he will be ok.

I hope it's the end of it, but I highly doubt it.

I've decided to stick with brands that, while they may not be the highest quality, seem to be more reliable. A brand that is a big name has more at stake, and also bigger brands tend to have their own plants/food sources/manufacturers.... I know menu foods produced a lot of brands that surprised us all, but in terms of dry foods I mean...

For now my cats are on Whiskas dry, and my dogs are on Iams dry.

Now that there is more focus on the topic, I'm sure they will find more contaminated foods. I spoke with my vet yesterday about the possibility of switching to a raw diet to the benefit of my cats and he thought I was freaking out over the recall. I told him that none of the food I was feeding was involved and that I just wanted to give them the best that I could...thinking raw would be just that.

He told me about all the negative things and that I was just fine feeding what I was feeding them. But you know, who's to say that they won't find anything in the food I'm feeding now. We have this false sense of security in the packaged foods we purchase and consume ourselves or give to our pets. Just because it comes from a reputable store or manufacturer, does it really mean it's safe? Of course not. We'll never really know, we'll just have to do the best we can to protect ourselves and our pets.

I think there will be more recalls, not only on pet food but food for human consumption. Read all crackers, cereals, etc. labels they all have gluten of one kind or another in them. My cats are on Whiskas pouches, Friskies wet cans, Purina Naturals, and Purina One dry. I can't tell you how much money I've spent on premium wet and dry foods that they turned up their noses at. My vet says that the important thing is that they are getting nutrition from the above and while some other foods may be better, if they won't eat them what's the point. They also won't eat pate food. Just chunk wet food. They are both thriving.

i've been using friskies cans for 6 months to a year. initially when the recalls started i stopped using the gravy foods. but i've gone back to friskies in gravy for breakfast. they've been fine, and went off their food after a few weeks of no gravy. i'm also using FF loaf style wet, some whiskas pate cans (recently discontinued ), whiskas & meow mix pouches, and NB - 1 flavor that's not recalled.

we've tried a bunch of foods, some of which i had to mail order. and ended up with a couple cases of high-end food i will be donating to the shelter. the guys think it's they also recently decided merrick is yucky in all flavors too.

It seems that way to me, Every where i search, I find that it is ok to feed and it's safe. I also hear that Purina does NOT get wheat gluten from china but some where in the US. I think ill give my kitty some, just a spoon full...
