Pet Foods = Human Foods... It's All the Same Thing...

Linda in Norman gave me a heads up on this article:

FDA Examines if Pet Food Contaminant in Human Food

The FDA named the six grain products to be inspected as wheat gluten, corn gluten, corn meal, soy protein, rice bran and rice protein.

"We're going to target firms that we know are receiving imported products," said David Acheson, chief medical officer of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition in a conference call with reporters. "The goal is obviously to sample as much as we can."

Like I said before, many of these pet food manufacturers have always been proud of the fact that they have been using "human quality" ingredients in their foods.

And that's been my biggest concern about this whole fiasco. This stuff is bound to be in our *people* foods.

On Monday, two U.S. lawmakers said a second company likely imported rice protein from China that was contaminated with Melamine. FDA officials on Tuesday would not say whether there was a second importer.

Those folks who said all of those "not nice" things about Menu Foods should take back what they said.


I just now realized that my kids are going to be real upset if they find out that they're going to have to give up their Doritoes.


Are we going to have to start trying to eat healthy now and give up all of our over-processed fake foods because of all of this?
