WHY would they think this would be okay? WHY? Evangers has to be the most disgusting company on earth! If I had no other choice, I'd even pick Purina, Hills, Iams, or Royal Canin over them! And you all KNOW that's not happening! I've never heard such crazy carp in my life!

Evanger’s proposes donating recalled pet food; FDA says no

Quote
The Food and Drug Administration has vetoed a proposal by Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Co. to donate recalled pet food to animal shelters after conducting random spot-checks for the animal euthanasia drug pentobarbital.

The proposal was revealed in a June 29 warning letter issued by FDA, and posted on its website Tuesday.

The letter, addressed to Holly N. Sher and Joel A. Sher, President and Vice President, respectively, notifies them that FDA found “serious violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and its implementing regulations” during an investigation that included supplier traceback, facility inspection, and analysis of samples collected by FDA.

Evanger’s suggested that if pentobarbital were to be present in any of its ground loaf products, it would be “well within the range that FDA had previously deemed not to be a health or safety concern in pet foods.” FDA disagrees that grinding would dilute any pentobarbital to safe levels, and points out that there is zero tolerance for pentobarbital in pet food.

Good grief!  These people are whacked.

Donating would give them a tax write-off.  What a wonderful caring company....   bangshead

sarcasmalert What, they figured they'd "help out" the (kill) animal shelters by saving them the drugs to euthanize?   >:D >:D >:D

Wow.  Just.   Wow.  And to think, years ago, I would buy the occasional can of Evanger's cat food for Pookie.  If he was still with me, or I had another pet, Evanger's would DEFINITELY be on the "not a snowball's chance in h-ll" list of pet foods I'd buy.  Un.  Real.

Bunch of sickos.
