Itchmo inquired about the controversial ingredient menadione in Blue Buffalo’s products as some readers were asking about the status. The Vitamin K additive (that was banned from human supplements) was removed in October of last year, but due to leftover packaging, it continues to be listed in some cases.
Full response after the jump.
BLUE elected to eliminate any worry from our loyal pet parents and removed Mendadione (sic) from our formulas as of Oct 06. Unfortunately we still have some old packaging inventory that is the process of being used up. This is standard industry practice and is allowed by both the FDA and AFFCO as high quality packaging materials are very expensive.
