There really is NO such thing as a safe pet food.
I'm just not suprised anymore when deep dark secrets come out.

You used to wait until a person was actually found guilty in court before they were tarred and feathered. Now they are guilty as soon as a news article hits the internet. They are declaring their innocence so I will wait until they are proven guilty in the court before making any final decisions on them and their dog food. After the Duke Lacrosse incident in our state (among others) I give everyone a chance to tell their side.

Chowder,

I agree with you but this one is gonna be hard to escape...sounds like they were going out of their way to do this....

But we will wait for due process to happen.

I don't know what to think of this....

Yes, it sucks, and it's poor ethic, etc.

However, this does not effect the quality of their foods or ingredients. If I was feeding their product I probably would not stop just because of this.

But it does suck. :frown:

I think Evanger's is one of the best canned dog foods you could get anywhere if you wanted to offer canned food. If I was feeding canned, I'd go ahead and feed Evangers regardless.

Hopefully Evangers is just stealing utility usage with the economy being so bad they may just be not wanting to pay the price! I am hoping they have not cut costs in any other areas! meaning lower cut meats for their dog foods!
I live in Illinois so this was around March 24th this happened.
WDJ as of last year had the Evangers company rated a premium company and stood behind the product and their plant which included on site inspections.
The complaint is about the misusage or gee lack of usage payment for utility bills not the quality of the products. But time will tell if they report anything other than the utility payments not being made! So for now the foods still seem great! The owners are the bad guys not paying for the utilities!

Evangers was a fantastic dog food company, until the family sold to these convicts. But this was many moons ago.

If you are looking for a quality can of food look at Merrick, Merrick Before Grain or Natures Logic.

When I looked at the ingredients seems to me they have the main meat ingredient be it Buffalo, chicken , salmon ~then they have chicken meal in each kind then potato in each kind, then turkey in each kind,and the rest of the ingredients,~~~ doesn't seem all that bad. :confused:

Well I know the tripe changed. They made it "complete and balanced." :rolleyes:

Why is that lame? I think it makes way more sense to sell a complete and balanced meal.

If you want to add a topper to your dogs meal, go to the grocery store and buy some meat in the meat department and throw it on.

The canned 100% meats were still processed. If your dog is already on kibble, how much more processed foods would you like to give him?

Boiled chicken is our favorite topper here but only on occasion. Remember not to mix raw meat and kibble in the same meal. If you want to add meat as a topper, make sure the meat is cooked.

Yes Salty Dog, some of us who feed raw still liked the fact that there were canned foods that had limited ingredients: as the whole problem with the industry is what exactly goes into their products.:rolleyes:

Their (used to be) 100% tripe was awesome. Green tripe is nasty and many raw feeders used this because it was the only one around that had just tripe and water. Now they've added all this other stuff, and made it undesirable.
