My son works for a dog food company. They do make higher end dog food.
He recently was made aware of the “extra” ingredients that are mixed in due to processing.
HIs first major surprise was bugs in yeast packets. He strongly protested this to management. They said it will all be cooked out and is not a concern.
The next issue is the opening of other ingredients which cause strips of plastic to fall into the vat. Again management says in the amount of food they produce, these trace amounts will not affect quality.
He is going to address these issues higher up in the company but wants to stop feeding his dog their food until that happens.
However, him changing food makes me wonder what other companies are doing that may be worse!
I know there are the same type issues when processing human food and allowances are made for contaminants. Are we overreacting here?
