We have a lot of entries for a US company, Breeder's Choice/Avoderm to start this off with.  My impression from what's shown for the company at the PetFood List was that only one of their products was made in China.  Not sure why we are seeing so many of their products coming through OASIS labeled filthy, if their dry foods are made by their own California plant, and most of their canned is made by Menu and American Nutrition.

http://www.thepetfoodlist.com/petfoods_pg1.htm

Breeder's Choice (information provided by company 4/06/07, updated 5/2/07)

Brands include Active Care, Advanced Pet Diets Select Choice, AvoDerm Select Cuts, Health Food for Dogs, Pinnacle
Canned manufactured by Menu Foods, and American Nutrition
All dry foods made by Breeder's Choice in their own facility in Irwindale, CA.
The 5.5 oz canned cat AvoDerm Natural and Pinnacle is from Menu.
The Pinnacle canned dog food has 3 formulas, only one is made at Menu. It is the the chicken formula.
AvoDerm 3 oz.select canned cat food is the only product manufactured in China.
Parent company is Central Garden and Pet.

Again, if all but the one canned cat food is made in the US, why are we seeing these OASIS refusals?  The only thing I can come up with is that the products were shipped elsewhere and returned for some reason.  When they returned, they were examined by FDA.  If this isn't the case, it may be that Breeder's Choice/Avoderm is now producing more than the 1 variety of canned cat food elsewhere.

4 pages of their Chicken jerky & duck products--remember--these can be packaged any way the importer wants, so the bags, headers and labels can look different than on the website.

We're now seeing a lot of rawhide products coming from Thailand, apparently because the importers are aware that made in China isn't being purchased.  Here's the rather large list of OASIS refusals of pet products from there:

menusux:

Once again, you have managed to get the "scoop"......unreal.

Just bought some "healthy edible" nylabone bones for Hannah.  They are now back in the bag with the receipt headed back to the store.

This is getting to be worse than a bad joke, it's a friggin nightmare..... Undecided

Other than what we cook for our kids, is anything safe?  What about our food?  Sort of gets you to thinking, doesn't it? Shocked

     What does "LIST INGRE LACKS N/C" mean?  Seems to be a recurring comment, but I have no idea what it means.   Huh

Click on the color highlighted word and it takes you to their definition, like it gives the definition of FILTHY.

You have to click on the Oasis lists

http://www.fda.gov/ora/oasis/12/ora_oasis_i_72.html

Then, on the right hand side you see words that are color highlighted.  Like FILTHY.  Click on FILTHY and it gives  you their definition of FILTHY.  Puke warning!!!!!

When I was checking into Pinnacle dry food for our kitten, I had inquired into their food.  They said they use Menu for their canned cat foods and the chicken & veg canned dog food.  They said they do not use ingredients from China.  She said except for quinoa from S America and lamb from New Zealand in the Avoderm Oven-Baked, all ingredients are purchased by their company (no brokers) from sources in the U.S.  They require certification from their sources, they test incoming ingredients, they test food after manufacturing to make certain it required specs for guaranteed analysis.  During the recall and periodically they send their products out to an independent lab for testing.  Im just copying from an e:mail they sent.    I dont know what this all means, perhaps an issue at their plant?  Guess I will be sending them another e:mail to find out....... Cool  Thanks Menusux!

I might add that I had not purchased their food but was getting ready to.  Darn it all, I think the only thing safe is bark and cardboard anymore. Angry

Also, I just sent a message to Pinnacle inquiring into this.  I copied and pasted the Oasis report and asked why their products were refused for being filthy.  It will be interesting to see how they respond, if they respond.

Okay for us slow people, who just started using AVODERM Dry cat food.

Are you telling me it is not safe and it is one of the foods that they are calling fillthy?

Very disappointing if that is the case my cats love it and finally stopped puking now that they are off the KUMPI.

Please let me know if I should stop using AVODERM my kitties were all ready made sick once by all this in March.

Going:

You can decide what you want to do about Avoderm......the same company makes Nylabone & I brought the "healthy" (ha) edible bones back. 

First of all, why is it coming IN to this country if it's made here?  And second of all, if the stuff coming in has been stopped for filth, I think that says enough right there.  My guess is that for the FDA to stop anything, it would have to be pretty bad.

That was enough for me to bring those bones back.  Won't use any more of their products either.

Choices are few but at least we are now learning the truth about what we've been feeding our babies after all this time.  Pretty disgusting...... Angry
