Thanks for that link Sparty.  Its a good article she wrote.  It really is shameful, knowing the unusually high  wet conditions, they should know that testing is important.  And whats even worse is those tests dont cost a lot.  So one can only assume that profit is so important to them that they dont want to even spare small amounts of money to ensure their grains are safe.   Angry  Ack, it makes me so mad.  Basically, once again, they used people's pets as their guineau pigs. Pfft to Cargill and the pet food companies involved that failed to run simple, inexpensive tests.    Tongue

P.S.  The Sandi that commented in that article is not me....just for clarification purposes.   Cheesy

I just don't understand.  I would think earning trust (real trust) would earn profits.  I guess I am naive.  It must be cheaper to have slick web pages on your site, explaining how you have and love pets too, and quality is the most important thing, and you have x number of steps to insure safety - than to test ingredients and final products.  Or in Cargill's case (per their excuse) to have the testing backup/corroboration in place, to learn immediately, if your testing results are not accurrate, not after a year.
