Re: Can the Pet Food Calamity Also Harm You? Mercola

Boldy, I have a hunch you knew your way around styrene ( a common Poly/Resin component) before this plastic food ever became news ;)

When the pet food scare began unfolding a few weeks ago, I did a little research and found that there is very little that separates the biggest pet food conglomerates from some of the big people food purveyors. Proctor & Gamble, Nestle and Delmonte are the three biggest revenue generators in the pet food industry. Many people would think this a misprint because they recognize these as people food providers. Thanks to divsersified multinational conglomerates, they do both. The conglomeration of a given company is an aspects that makes it difficult to know who's who. Several years ago P&G bought out "acquired".... "merged with"..... whatever they wanna call it contractrually, Iams, which remains a "wholly owned subsidiary" still operating as Iams albeit under the P&G umbrella. Likewise, one of the other two (Nestle, if I remember correctly) bought out Purina (and also bought out Hershey a few years back).... so don't be surprised, it's not all that far of a stretch, if one of the intermediate bake houses Inventory Control Manager has a bad week ordering ingredients, dog food (with or without the offending plastic) "accidentally" ends up in your chocolate kisses, or vice versa.
