It's a good thing I bought California Natural dry food this weekend, rather than Natural Balance, which I almost bought. Let's hope California Natural is not next. Funny thing is that I very nearly bought Natural Balance Venison and Green Pea dry cat food on Saturday.
Ironically, the reason I found the venison and green pea formula attractive is this statement on Natural Balance's site:
No Artificial Preservatives, Flavors, Colors, or Bleached Ingredients. Does not contain Corn, Soy, Wheat, Rice, Eggs, Dairy Products or Sunflower Oil.
I must be an idiot because I thought that no soy, wheat, or rice meant just that. However, Natural Balance's recall press release states:
We believe the source of the melamine is a rice protein concentrate.
How can something which claims to have "no rice," contain a rice protein concentrate? Does that sound wrong to anyone?
The boys took to the California Natural dry food right away. My Orijen is coming in the mail on Thursday, and I pray that it's everything it's cracked up to be.
