Onion Powder in Lean Cuts dog food

To those who have stopped using this dog food because it contains Onion Powder.

Are onions potentially dangerous to dogs? Sometimes, if ingested in HUGE quantities. (several pounds of onion at one time)

Can prolonged exposure to onions be dangerous. Yes, but it takes LARGE quantities to do any damage at all (1/4 to 1/2 pound daily for an extended period of time)

Can minute amounts of onion powder fed daily affect a dog in any way. NO

The amount of Onion Powder in Lean Cuts dog food is equal to 1/4 of a gram per can (1/112 of an ounce or aproximately 1/1800 pound). This amount cannot harm dogs in any way and it would even be difficult or impossible to detect through detailed blood analysis.

The quality of the ingredients used is very high, the amount of Onion Powder used is next to nothing. The food is safe for lifetime consumption and will not harm your dog in any way.

Before you start writing posts directing others to use or not use a product based on your opinions (as opposed to science) at least do your homework.
