    Are you saying that Nestle Purina did not have any recalls because they used the same Gluten from China that Diamond used? Neither company continued using Gluten from China after the issue was discovered. More food goes through Costco in a day than all the other botique brands sell in a year. Strickly based upon the tonage of food they sell, if quality were an issue, it would pop up fast due to the food being consumed by hundreds of thousands of dogs. (if not more)

    Did Diamond and Nestle Purina do something criminal and bad? Yes, they both did. Do I think the companies continue adding Gluten with Melamine to food? No, I don't think there is any way they continued.

    Hey Jackwagon, Diamond's kill of 100s of dogs had nothing at all to do with Gluten or Melamine. Do some research and you won't look like such an idiot with your posts.

    You're just trying to steer a conversation the direction you want it to go and protect your own stance on feeding your Purina which has had China ingredient supply based issues. I didn't go that way and again, you're a broken record. It's pretty nice that your so good a having a conversation and have fun looking like an idiot calling people names, suggesting they eat dog food to kill themselves etc. Just to cut down on your sensationalism, the aflatoxin killed 76 dogs and was confined to the Gaston facility according the to FDA.

    Then, out of all that...someone calls me "snarky"?

    I thought you put my on your ignore list anyways?

    You may feed them chicken, but if you'd feed them x-farm chicken, then you are an idiot. It really is that simple.
    I don't eat chicken from x-dressing farms. At least I am pretty sure I don't....ha ha!

    Still lack logic in your argument. Not ALL facilities had recalls.

    Glen, you are a crusader. One out of a thousand "crusaders" are Saints. The rest are regular ole' whackjobs.

    Although Fromm's has an excellent record, the only one anyone can think of with NO recalls, that is not the only way to choose. I think what Happy was getting at, is that at some time or another all of the manufacturers have had recalls or will have one in the future. What matters is HOW THEY ADDRESS THE PROBLEM AND WHAT STEPS THEY TAKE TO PREVENT IT HAPPENING AGAIN!!!!!! That's where Diamond falls off the bus. They had REPEATED issues and showed very little innovation to improve the QC. TOTW that was made in SC was recalled. That factory had gone through this at least twice before. Wanna risk your dog to see if they got it fixed this time?

    All of the "actual" information is available on the FDA and CDC websites. They had a recall this year for Salmonella which sickened 14 people.

    2Tall this is exactly what those two from the PNW can't seam to comprehend. A child of three can understand it, but not these two.
