I have only heard of 2 of these brands, but even if you don't feed any of them, be sure to let family and friends know, in case they do.
August 17, 2021 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a formal warning to Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc., maker of 12 pet food brands and sub-brands, after inspections of manufacturing plants revealed serious violations.
The FDA claims conditions at the firm’s facilities likely contributed to the illness or death of hundreds of dogs and cats.
According to the FDA…
“Analysis of these subsequent samples found that additional SPORTMiX branded products, spanning multiple products and lot codes, contained aflatoxin at levels as high as 558 ppb. FDA considers that aflatoxin levels in dog and cat food above 20 ppb will support a charge of adulteration… because of the reasonable possibility that a regular diet of such food will be fatal or injurious to the health of the pet. Therefore, these pet food products manufactured in your OK facility are adulterated in that they bear or contain a poisonous or deleterious substance which renders them injurious to health.”
Editor — Aflatoxin levels were nearly 28 times the safe upper limit of 20 parts per billion (ppb) established by the FDA.
