Do report what you find, but be accurate and fair.

We should let you know that if you are claiming something negative about a product (IE: Product X contains poisons, or uses roadkill) please make sure that you state either "I believe" or provide evidence of the claim. Your opinions are totally fine as long as you don't claim something not true as a fact. As you may know, many pet food companies visit this site and we would hate for you or us to be sued by what's posted here. We hate having to remove anyone's posts. We also don't want to cause unsubstantiated panic.

Itchmo or any of our admins will not be responsible for unsubstantiated comments.

Thank you!

Thank you, Itchmo and staff, for the warnings. I agree we all have to be careful about what we say since the scientific community is not sure what the cause(s) is and the resulting biological effects are on our pets. Hopefully, if we all continue to work together, what we can post are food safety testing results on the particular products that our pets have consumed and say we believe this food contains this substance based on the test results. Each consumer can then decide whether they want to continue buying a particular product.

Please urge all pet food manufacturers to institute and post food safety testing results on all their products on their web sites, complete tests of all vegetable proteins and pork and chicken products. Then Itchmo and all of us who are concerned would not have to do this.

As of May 12, 2007, almost 3 months after initial recalls, the majority of the manufacturers are not doing so, and they should be to indicate a real humane concern in preventing further pet deaths and to indicate they are doing everything humanly possible to provide safe, wholesome products for their consumers.
Sincerely,
