We had no major problems with a USA Today article until this part:
Q: So pet food might not be as safe as human food?
A: Actually, it probably is. Dogs and cats naturally eat raw foods, and their systems are better able to withstand potential contaminants that might harm humans. And dog and cat foods may be safer than many foods consumed by humans because most dog and cat foods are canned or cooked, which kills bacteria.
Wait, they’re kidding right? When was the last time someone recalled 1% of the human food supply? Or when did more than 76 customers die (as in the case of Diamond Pet Foods in 2005)? When did the FDA leave a contaminated plant running after people died? Also, their reasoning that pets can withstand more contaminants is not indication that the food is safe. That’s like saying “Car A is just as safe as Car B because Car A’s occupants wear helmets.” Even if the end result is the same (which it isn’t) the food is still more dangerous.
