As the post re: Stern's comments re: ChemNutra indicates, we have NO refusals of vegetable proteins on the OASIS List for November.  But we have a new source to be wary of--chews made in Thailand.  You'll see some of the people we know from past OASIS refusals and the Salmonella Detention List again for November.

I think everyone knows these people are also known as Pingyang Pet Products Co. Ltd., that trace amounts of melamine were found by Wal-Mart testing after removal of them from W-M shelves, and that W-M recently decided not to continue carrying their product.  The company hired a US Public Relations agency and through it, contacted Itchmo twice, with regard to their products being proven safe.  Their website at:

is still offline.  It was taken off the internet very quickly after the products were removed from Wal-Mart shelves and the melamine was found.  They are apparently somehow still doing business and have some way to try to ship products to the United States--otherwise we wouldn't see the 2 November refusals for salmonella contamination on the 5th and again on the 13th.  Something else to watch for, as we now know they are NOT out of business.

What's getting me angry re: the bird products is that Eight in One/United Pet/Spectrum Brands, continues dealing with the Peidi "group" for these and their Dingo products.  The company has been on the salmonella detention list since the end of 2001 for problems with their chicken jerky treats, etc.

Those doing the purchasing have known the place has been troubled since then, yet they continue dealing with them.  The Dingo Chicken Jerky recall at the end of March of 2007 didn't seem to "teach" them anything either, because we have a dog product with salmonella (again!) in OASIS in June of this year, then the toxic items for birds, hamsters & gerbils in September.  I think the "birdie" goof balls are really Dingo goof balls for dogs, as that's the only product I saw at Eight in One with that type of name. 

In October, they send us toxic treats for hamsters, gerbils, rats or rabbits, and mice (H/G/R/M), and in November we're back to toxic bird products.

When we had birds, every item with perhaps the exception of millet sprays, was US-made and grown.

I used to buy Eight in One's Vitakraft treat sticks for my guy, but stopped when we got into the recalls because they have vegetable protein in them and they're made in Thailand.  He loved them, but I just wasn't comfortable with them anymore.

Re: the lack of vegetable proteins on OASIS, I have been seeing various news stories re: PF prices on the rise because of the cost of various grain products and just found this today in December's Pet Age.  (We can't read the article because we don't subscribe.)

Pet Age Contents December 2007

"Safety Drives Natural Market

"Americans looking for safer pet foods will help propel the market for natural pet products to $2.5 billion by 2012.

"The China Syndrome

"Some manufacturers and retailers are taking a harder look at Chinese imports."

If it's costing them more to test the imported grain products, then they no longer are the bargain they once were, plus--they (most, I think...)  realize everyone active at Itchmo didn't fall off the last turnip truck that rolled by.  Smiley  They are aware we post what we find and think and that others who might never post at all, do come here regularly to read what we have on Forums and the blogs.  Contrary to what PFI, Duane-o, and the "China Clipper", Nancy Cook ("We can't afford to insult these people" Cheesy ), are saying, those of us who buy their products are not willing to do it if Chinese ingredients are a part of them. 

Bottom line is none of them can stay in business unless they get our $, so they have to be willing to give the customer what he/she is willing to pay for or they're done, and they know it.

I was honestly more comfortable about China in the pre-Nixon visit days.  The threats they were making re: nuclear involvement were just that--threats.  Now they're over here with their toxic products killing all of us segments at a time.  It would seem that Big Business prevailed on Big Government so they could make more $ sourcing products--and outsourcing jobs--via China.

The government was certainly aware that the "gatekeepers" were not able to police these imports properly, but they opened the floodgates to let it all in. 

What else gets me is that all of it is slightly deceitful--because you have these well-known American/US brand names which you're purchased and trusted for years--but they either are no longer being made in the US or the ingredients which go into the product are no longer from the US.  Yet here's the all-American brand name...

My daughters friend was going to Walmart today & I looked in the sale for her. Guess what;they still have Dingo products & they are on sale.
 For anyone with birds,buy american seeds & salt free nuts & make your own with local honey or organic peanut butter.
 I do think co's are watching this & other sites,I just don't think places like Walmart or Petsmart & the other big box stores give a damn. They can still sell to anyone who doesn't know better.

In the Pet Supplies Plus I buy from they have organic bird food and treats and they had those 2 yrs ago in the store.

Menusux your exactly right about the gatekeepers - they are getting rid of more of them so if the floodgates are not at their widest point as in 'open' they now surely will be.

Too bad I didnt video the looks from store clerks I got when I mentioned that this food had this pesticide, genetically modified or cancer causing things in it and thats why I was not buying it. They also have no clue-most just go along to get along with their head buried up to their necks in the sand. Glad the people on here are fortunate to not have fallen off the turnip truck. We ridin' the big wagon with the clydesdales.

May your troubles be less,
Your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door
