Smucker’s withdraws varieties of Gravy Train, Kibbles n Bits, and Skippy Wet Dog Food

The J.M. Smucker Company is initiating a voluntary withdrawal of a limited quantity of Gravy Train®, Kibbles ‘N Bits®, and Skippy® Wet Dog Food products after learning specific SKUs did not meet our specifications because a minor ingredient may contain low levels of pentobarbital. This is not a threat to pet safety. Although the extremely low levels do not present a health or safety risk, their presence in our products is not acceptable to us.

Local honey is good for allergies, since it's made using the pollen from local plants, but in a form the body can handle.

I think it tastes like overly sweet blackberries.

I'd have to taste it again, but that seems like a really good description.  It was sort of sweet and sour at the same time.

I took a dose tonight.  The taste was . . . interesting.

I think it tastes like overly sweet blackberries. I love it. I'm allergic to blackberries. Once I get my plants going and producing, I'm going to save some for making cobbler. I haven't had blackberry cobbler in YEARS.

I was told in an email that if I wanted to make anything on my own, it would be better to use local honey for sweetening it, and that way I'd have a double punch of immune health in it. I'll see. I don't know how it will affect the taste.

You've inspired me.  Since just about every time I turn on the news, I hear about people dying from the flu this year, I decided to pick up some elderberry products.  I have some here, but it's expired so not as potent as it used to be, and I want to take some until the season ends to help my immune system.  So I stopped by the Integrative pharmacy near work and picked up 1 bottle of elderberry syrup and another of extract.

It was funny - I went to the herb section and didn't see any and though, cr-p, they're sold out.  Then I turned around and they were behind me in the "immune support" section.  Whew!

I took a dose tonight.  The taste was . . . interesting.

A Comparison: FDA Response to Pet Illness and Death linked to Kibble and Raw Pet Food


Quote
comparison of how FDA has handled pet illness and death and human illness linked to kibble pet food and raw pet food.

First and foremost…this post is NOT in defense of raw pet food or in opposition to kibble pet food. The point of this post is to point out how FDA handles pet illness and death reports linked to a pet food and human illness linked to a pet food differently – depending on the company involved and/or the type/style of pet food involved. If FDA wishes to have the respect and trust of pet food consumers, they must handle all pet illness and death reports (linked to a pet food or treat) the same.

Ew.

If dog or cat hair yarn is "Ew," then all other kinds of animal fur yarns like wool are "Ew" too. It's not like they don't wash it before they make the yarn.
