What are your feelings regarding Solid Gold containing melamine as reported recently.InkedMarieMember
I missed it….can you post a link?
Here you go. Down at the bottom.
Solid gold replied on their FB page. But it won’t let me copy. Go to posts by others and you’ll see it.
Aflatoxins are not the same thing as melamine. I looked on the Solid Gold FB page, but couldn’t find a discussion about either aflatoxins or melamine. Can you share a link to the FB age for the discussion you’re referencing.MelissaandcrewMember
Foodie-Its on there. Click the “posts to page” and its perhaps two or three down. Sxsolid gold states that they have never had a positive test, and the Chinese never provided information(read the full response). It was melamine China was claiming they found, Solid Gold basically cried Bull : )
I found an article on the Truth About Pet Food earlier that’s apparently the same study. Here’s the article I read: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/aflatoxins-melamine-and-cyanuric-acid-found-in-us-made-pet-food/ The fact that the study was conducted by a Chinese company causes it to lose some credibility, in my opinion. I think aflatoxins, are to be expected to some degree in any food that contains cereal grains. Melamine is a different story. I wonder if that Chinese company that conducted the testing must’ve done so after feeling some heat and some finger pointing from the U.S.
I don’t know why I can’t see what you’re talking about, Melissa. I swear I keep looking and can’t find it. It’s bugging me! Maybe my device (Kindle) is the problem.
If you read down the article under That’s not all they found . It states Melamine was found in Purina, Iams and Solid Gold.MelissaandcrewMember
It’s on solid gold facebook. Click on “posts to page”. Someone asks for a statement and they responded.
Oh, now I see it, Melissa. I thought we were still talking about the Dogs Naturally article. Based on what I also read on Susan Thixton’s site, and what the Chinese study published in their newspapers, it does seem as though the study was slanted against the U.S. It seems like Solid Gold’s response on their FB is appropriate. The study doesn’t seem to have much credibility. I like Solid Gold. I just wish they didn’t use Diamond for production of their bison products.
Thank You ….I was quite distressed by the original article. We have actively promoted this brand to our viewers when asked what food we’re using. We had just finished a conversation with Solid Gold about their ingredients changes made in December to the Solid Gold Skydancer.
