Warning – Dog Food Alert

Here’s an excerpt from The Doggington Post report

Based on the FDA’s findings, the violations occurring at the pet food giant’s Allentown, Pennsylvania plant may result in cans of pet food that have been adulterated “in that they have been prepared, packed, or held under insanitary conditions whereby they may have become contaminated with filth, or whereby they may have been rendered injurious to health.”

Six Serious & Significant Health Violations

Inspectors found a total of six significant violations that could result in product that is dangerous for pets, including:

1. Failure to produce each can or pouch of pet food according to the process filed with the FDA.

2. Failure to record and document deviations of cook time, temperature, pouch thickness, etc., which may result in adulterated product.

3. Failure to chlorinate or sanitize recirculated cooling water.

4. Failure to establish a system for product traffic control that adequately prevents any unprocessed cans from moving forward on the product line.

5. Failure to install thermometers that can clearly be seen and accurately be read.

6. Failure to have all processing and production records reviewed and signed or initialed by a qualified quality assurance representative or plant manager.
