Title: Chart of Types of Rendering Products & Pentobarbital Found in PF
Post by: menusux on December 31, 2007, 10:17:51 AM
Am prefacing this by saying that some of the information given here is close to 10 years old and it deals with dry dog food only.  But it is evidence that, contrary to what some of the PFCs have said about this issue, the presence of pentobarbital WAS detected in some brands by FDA.  Think the chart also is useful because it details what type of by-products/rendering the listed brands were using at the time (and may still be using today), and how they would appear on the labeling of the respective food.
