Marketing companies know that hopeful customers will make positive connections between real and imagined information.

On Champion's site "Canadian", "Regional" and "Fresh" are prominent, so it's easy to "hope" that all ingredients are just that.

I don't see "US chicken and turkey meal" mentioned anywhere on Chamption's site.  LOL, guess that would spoil the "wholesome" effect.

JMO, but not discussing the irradiation issue is like ignoring the elephant in the room.  No snark intended.

RaggiesRule,

Zea Mays is cornsilk, not the actual corn kernels or any part of the husk. It is not classified as grain. They removed that botanical early on with their first change in formulation.

Thanks bug - easily explained I would have thought as you have done - Zea mays can of course refer to more than the grain. 

Though that was not what I was quering - does corn refer to something other than Zea mays in north america?

Agreed, I keep going back to the issue of how a company treats its customers.  They can have supposedly the best food on the planet but seeing how they treat customers when there is a problem, to me, is a good indication of how I myself might be treated if I had a sick cat from their food.  They didnt treat the people connected with the irradiation problem so hot...so while it might not be a question, perhaps as a store owner that is meeting with the company, you can pass on what some pet owners think about it and why some wont be trying their food.  I think its good for a company to hear how their food problem and how they handled their food problem might have affected their company.  Its perhaps a way to initiate change for the better.

Poco why would they need an MRI? Is there something we don't know about the food that you'd like to share perhaps?

No, JJ. You might want to check the following thread to see what Poco was talking about (http://itchmoforums.com/raw-food-diets-for-cats/raw-feeding-and-blood-work-discussion-t9263.0.html). So actually, in the case of Orijen, one might have caught the demyelination early (from the feeding of irradiated lots that had gone out to Australia) if an MRI was conducted. But, MRIs are very costly to do, are not available to everyone in addition to the animal having to be anaesthetized in order to perform the test, so I don't think that would have been on anyone's radar at the time -- a little extreme. The condition these cats are suffering through would not have been able to be confirmed but for an MRI, although routine bloodwork may have shown the other problems encountered with their organ systems -- not that they could have done anything more to help these poor cats.

I do hope things are turning around for them.
