GMO in Cat Food: What You Should Know
« on: September 09, 2014, 04:17:24 PM »

How can you avoid GMO’s?
Look for foods that are USDA certified organic. The use of GMO’s is prohibited in organic products. By the USDA’s own definition, “an organic farmer can’t plant GMO seeds, an organic cow can’t eat GMO alfalfa or corn, and an organic soup producer can’t use any GMO ingredients. To meet the USDA organic regulations, farmers and processors must show they aren’t using GMOs and that they are protecting their products from contact with prohibited substances, such as GMOs, from farm to table.”

If you can’t find a USDA organic cat food your cat will eat, avoid all foods with corn, by-products, unidentified meat-meals, and nutrient-empty fillers. You should be feeding grain-free foods anyway, but if you do feed foods that contain rice, be aware that rice can have GMO strains.
