Patent Gives Insight into Pet Food Ingredients

From The Truth About Pet Food newsletter:

"What we don't know about the ingredients used to make dog foods and cat foods is staggering. Those in charge of defining pet food ingredients provide the industry a means to hide the real truth of quality from the petsumer. Thanks to a patent provided to Mars Incorporated (maker of Pedigree, Nutro, Whiskas pet foods), we are provided a bit of insight into where and how some pet food ingredients are obtained. This isn't pretty.

Patent Assignee: Mars Incorporated
Title: Method of utilizing offals for pet food manufacture
Publication Date: 8/18/2009
Link: Method of utilizing offals for pet food manufacture - Mars Incorporated

Below are excerpts from the patent (bold added):
The invention claimed is:

1. A method for the recovery of commercial waste parts for use in the manufacture of commercial pet food products, comprising the steps of: collecting waste parts selected from the group consisting of hearts, kidneys, lungs, liver, spleen, tripe, meat offcuts, chicken viscera, chicken heads and feet, chicken pieces, and chicken necks from the commercial processing of animals; size-reducing the waste parts..."

I had a friend that was driving while on vacation and passed a Pet Food manufacturing company.
Outside the building was a steel dumpster, full of dead cows...with the stiff legs, pointed up in the air.
This was in the middle of a hot summer's day...I told him, too bad you didn't stop and get me a picture.
- road kill and euthanized dogs, also make it to the rendering plants
- our dog will be cremated, when the time comes...not ending up in the next bag of kibble

Linda H...thanks for sharing the link.

Yet, many dogs live long healthy lives. I'm sorry I don't see what the big deal is.
