If a company claims that their food is "unaffected" by the recall and that they don't test on animals, but they use Menu Foods to make some of their products, does that mean that they belong on PETA's "do not test" list?
I'm looking right now Petsitusa's up-to-date list of companies and where their foods come from. There are even more companies that use Menu Foods on here than I ever imagined. What is really disturbing is that some of these companies appear on the "do not test" list even though they do business with a Menu Foods, a company with a reputation for vicious animal testing. Maybe PETA isn't really taking that hard a look at these companies.
For example, both Wysong and Nature's Variety appear on the PETA list, but they also both appear on the list of companies that use Menu Foods to make canned food for them. Is it ok not to test on animals yourself if you do business with a manufacturer that tests?
I feel particularly duped by Wysong. I bought some Wysong Au Jus this past weekend b/c I was under the belief that Wysong didn't use Menu Foods. In fact, according to Petsitusa, the Au Jus is made by Menu Foods. In the garbage it goes! Apparently, you just can't win. It seems like, with a handful of exceptions (Merrick and Blue Buffalo come to mind), everybody uses Menu Foods for something.
Does the pet food industry have no shame?
