Shame on them? Shame on you too!

Today I had a shopper wagging her finger at a dog food company, yet buying their kibble. She wagged her finger and said "Shame on them!" but still bought their food!

She doesn't want to read the labels, she doesn't want to feed fresh, but she wants to have an opinion nonetheless.

Too many people still want the easy way out when feeding their pets. That's what started this whole mess in the first place - No one was paying attention!!

Complacency is already on its way back.

If all this pet food recall business hasn't convinced you yet...

Come on folks! If you still trust these food companies you're crazy! or lazy? There's a whole secret, incestuous world of pet food the world is just now getting a glimpse of.

I've discovered the wonderful Dogster blog to follow along on all the latest news and opinion on this topic.

And it's finally come to haunt me directly at work - one of the foods I sell at the store had a recall. We had a sign out saying "Safe Pet Food Here" with a big arrow. Now we joke about crossing out the arrow and writing in a question mark. Or pointing the arrow directly at our freezers of raw food.

Fresh is best! Of course you need to worry about livestock eating contaminated food too. Funny how this pet food scare has opened people's eyes up to the food chain they use too. Let's see how long they stay open.
