We want to inform all of our friends that BLUE products are NOT part of the national pet food recall.
The message reassures us that their food is not being recalled, but it doesn't say whether they do business with Menu Foods.
I wrote a note to Blue Buffalo, asking them if they use Menu Foods and they wrote me back today with the following response:
Thank you for taking the time out to write us. And thank you for your
interest in BLUE. BLUE products have never been produced by Menu Foods
and we are not affiliated with them in any way. In addition, all of our
formulas are gluten free and we do not use wheat in any of our products
Great news! I wrote them back to advise them that they'd help better their own reputation if they simply came out and stated as much on the home page of their Web site.
Companies should be proud to NOT be associated with Menu Foods. Of course, what we still don't know -- and should probably ask -- is what company makes their food and whether that company does animal testing, but until I know otherwise, I give Blue the benefit of the doubt and many kudos for not doing business with scumbags like Menu Foods.
