Pet food probe: Who was watching suppliers?
By Julie Schmit, USA TODAY

"Even some pet-food companies say they don't always know what's
really in the food they sell. Or where the ingredients come from."


"If you long suspected pet food contained mystery meat, this
won't surprise you. But for a $15 billion industry whose profits
depend on consumers' trust, the admission may be the biggest
revelation of all from the 8-week-old pet-food recall."


"companies who market pet foods often don't make them and may not
watch their contract manufacturers closely enough. The situations
also raise questions about how diligent companies have been in
selecting and inspecting suppliers of raw ingredients."


And someone is finally getting it right (if they walk the talk):

"Natura Pet Products, owner of the Innova and Evo brands, has
vowed to buy or build a canning facility to make its own wet
foods, even though none of its products have been recalled.

""At the end of the day, if anybody is going to screw something
up, we want it to be us," says Natura co-founder Peter Atkins."
