Carrageenan is a common canned/moist pet food ingredient.  It is not added to benefit the pet - in fact carrageenan could harm the pet....but it is added to improve the 'look' of the canned food.

Carrageenan comes with risk and provides no nutritional benefit to the pet.  According to Greg Aldrich, PhD (pet food industry advisor)

Just for appearance sake and a cancer risk...is it worth it?  Not for my pets.

There are pet foods available that don't use carrageenan.  Read the ingredient list carefully on your canned pet foods.  This is an ingredient that should be avoided.
