Busted: 55 Times Worse Than Giving Your Pet Water From Flint, Michigan

Quote
Story at-a-glance

A small non-profit organization, Clean Label Project, has tested over 900 of the best-selling pet foods for over 130 contaminants and toxins

Lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium were found in a variety of tested pet foods; contaminants of one kind or another were measured in nearly every food

Examples include high levels of lead in a Wellness grain-free cat food and an Orijen dog food; a Rachael Ray formula contained high levels of mercury

Did you read the comments?  Someone posted a link about the "independent lab" that was used.  I'm posting the link here:

https://www.reddit.com/r/dogs/comments/6l0vs4/discussion_recent_claims_by_clean_label_project/

I confess, reading it made my head hurt, and I'm still not sure I followed it all.  But I wanted to share it.

BTW, that's not to say the results aren't valid.  But they may not be.

No. Never read comments, but it disturbed me when I searched Hills Science Diet and came up with 5-star items. Not anywhere near all of their foods tested though.
