RE: List of Pet Food Manufacturers in Utah, NY, Kansas, and Missouri

The latest update today (April 19) indicates that the 5 manufacturers that purchased from Wilbur-Ellis are in Utah, NY, Kansas, and Missouri (2).

Besides Natural Balance, none of the other manufacturers are coming forward, so I did some searching around on the internet, and found the following list of pet food manufactuers in these named states from the Pet Food Institute’s Active Members list (they are makers of dry, canned, and semi-moist dog and cat foods and treats for dogs and cats). I'm not suggesting that is a comprehensive list. But at least it's a start.

Okay, help me out here. There's so much going on. I just put my girls on TO Ocean Blue and that comes from Chenango Pet Foods. I can't find the contents but I believe it's grain free and probably doesn't have rice. Do I need to worry that Chenango is on this list??? Or worry YET?

:eek: does that mean that TO could potentially also be affected? :eek:

TD, that's my fear too!! I just bought a big bag and switched the girls onto it. Which by the way they like (although Halo is a bit gassy, but that's probably just from the change).

This is all just too much to take in. You do need to start that raw feeding company TD.

I am also overwhelmed by all of this. All I can say is check your Timberwolf Organics, Canine Caviar, Natural Balance bags for ingredients to see if rice protein or rice gluten is used. If they are not used then they should be okay but I think I would be leery of any ingredients used if Chenango imports some of them from China. Maybe I'm just overly cautious. :shrug:

The manufacturing plants listed are "supposedly" the ones that received the shipment from Wilbur-Ellis so we need to find out what pet foods are manufactured at those plants. I listed the ones I know and hope others can add any others that they know of. :fingerscr

I know in a USAToday article Nestle purina said they did not use rice protein concentrate in the foods.

Or is this that may have purchased other items from this company?

ETA; quote

"Along with Diamond, pet-food makers Nestlé Purina PetCare and Procter & Gamble said Tuesday that they don't use rice protein concentrate in their foods.

Doesn't Purina know that they are the same thing? :rolleyes:

oh for sure they know... but if their customers don't know... they won't stop buying will they? :rolleyes:

edited to add: i may have jumped the gun. have looked at a few of their products (bleecchh! that was hard, LOL!) and could only find wheat gluten, and corn gluten. but i only looked at 4 or 5 dog formulas. too discouraging!
