Pet food produced in this country has to meet the same standard (for commercial sterility, general labeling requirements and adultration, it can only contain edible ingredients) as food produced for human consumption for the very reason contained in this thread, people might eat it,,,,,

I supervise a processing area for a major food processor and when I attended Better Process Control School (an FDA requirement), the pet food people (Think purina) outnumbered the people food people............

  Sounds okay... but I have a but.

  The regulations/laws for processing pet foods are very different from those for humans. Who makes this product?

  I came across this yesterday while doing the weekly grocery thing at WalMart.  Go to the Pet Food aisle, yes you heard right, PET food....

  Now look for plastic boxes of treats called Bountiful something or other. They come in Dried Apples, Dried Banannas, Dried Carrots, Dried Sweet Potatoes, etc. Now before you go yuck, read the ingredients label. The one on the carrots for instance says "Dried Carrots." Thats it, just carrots, nothing else. Wanna bet that you can eat it? nly $3.98 a box!
