Supreme Extra Value dog food is formulated to meet or exceed the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) nutrient profiles for maintenance of adult dogs.

What does the AAFCO do?? if anything? cause apparently I can **** on a stick and it would meet or exceed the nutrient profiles for maintenance of adult dogs.

I dogsat him for 24 hours once,I didn't want to give him back.IF he's ever "up for adoption" you will tell me right? He would be a great addition to my fuzzbutts,he would live IN the house and get brush everyday :o

October 5th, 2006, 12:00 PM

What does the AAFCO do??

From AAFCO's site:

"The term AAFCO stands for the Association of American Feed Control Officials. A basic goal of AAFCO is to provide a mechanism for developing and implementing uniform and equitable laws, regulations, standards and enforcement policies for regulating the manufacture, distribution and sale of animal feeds; resulting in safe, effective, and useful feeds. The Association thereby promotes new ideas and innovative procedures and urges their adoption by member agencies, for uniformity.
Purpose and Function of AAFCO:

The purpose of the corporation shall be to establish and maintain an Association through which officials of any state, dominion, federal or other governmental agency and employees thereof charged with a responsibility in enforcing the laws regulating the production, labeling, distribution, or sale of animal feeds or livestock remedies may unite to explore the problems encountered in administering such laws, to develop just and equitable standards, definitions and policies to be followed in enforcing such laws, to promote uniformity in such laws, regulations and enforcement policies, and to cooperate with members of the industry producing such products in order to promote the effectiveness and usefulness of such products."


It sounds like a feed industry lobbying group. You know, give our legislators and congressmen money so that the feed industry gets tax cuts or credits and no government regulation. (I KNOW, I won't get any more political than that!)

So basically the AAFCO does nothing but it looks like they do lots??!?!?!?!

Amazing how many people who see that AAFCO "guarantee" on a bag of crap food and think " must be good food":confused: :shrug: :frustrated:

yep... but WE know better and are spreading the word, right? :rolleyes: "8 dogs, 6 months, if 6 survive with no apparent sickness, the food gets a stamp of approval". :eek:
