Itchmo Iams Large Breed Testing Update:
After a report of cyanuric acid being found in a sample of what was reported to be Iams Large Breed dry dog food, Itchmo readers help locate 2 bags that matched the lot number of the alleged food. Our multiple tests have yielded inconclusive results.
We shipped out one bag to Midwest Labs and had it tested for melamine and cyanuric acid. The lab results came back negative for both items. We contacted Accutrace, who had Expertox test the original, opened sample again and confirmed that it was positive. They also added that the levels of cyanuric acid detected was 78 ug/g.
As a reference measure, we sent a bag of Iams Large Breed dry dog food with a different number to Expertox via Accutrace and it tested negative for both substances.
Expertox believes the discrepancy is due to the different methods of testing.
We still have one more unopened bag. We will continue to look for an independent lab that will test for cyanuric acid using the same method as Expertox.
Itchmo has also contacted the FDA regarding any updates to their investigation and we hope to hear from them soon.
