ASPCA Says: Avoid All Non-US Protein Supplements. “Crisis Not Over”

This is the headline of their today’s press release: “As Pet Food Recall Expands, ASPCA Warns Crisis Not Over: More Cases May Be Seen.”

Many of you have already called manufacturers, and a recommendation from the ASPCA the same. (Emphasis theirs)

“We are strongly recommending that pet parents immediately investigate, via their pet food manufacturer’s Web site or by calling them directly, where the ingredients—specifically protein supplements—are sourced from.”

Given the current situation and until this crisis is resolved, the ASPCA is recommending pets be fed products containing U. S.-sourced protein supplements only.

We have started a thread to collect this data in our Forums.
We would ask this:
Can you guarantee in writing that your food contains only US-grown vegetable proteins?

They also recommend that your pet sees a vet if any recalled food was consumed — not wait until they show symptoms. And extend fluid treatments if the pet is found sick.

P.S. Want to help? Spread recall truth. Place these buttons on your site.

    Last night I read on a forum that Merrick and Solid Gold are one in the same. I think it was that Merrick bought Solid Gold. Also there is an ing. that is ETHYLENEDIAMINE DIHYDRIODE which is Ethylene glycol and it’s called propylene glycol. That is anti-freeze, right? I do have a couple of his cans and I did look and found it on the can. It’s in the trash. They do have a rendering plant from what I read.
