    Wellness brand lawsuit

    Dunno if others knew about this when it happened (it's over a year old) but just heard about it today from a friend. Seems Wellness wasn't including such high quality ingredients as we all thought.

    Or the plaintiffs cannot read labels and they definitely lack common sense. Wellness has always contained named meat meals and the orgin of those meals was USDA inspected named meats. Same as all the other good quality kibbles. No meat meal is human quality, it comes from grinding and drying leftovers from human quality meats.

    I'm not an expert in any kind of law, but, isn't a class action suit usually like a LOT of people?

    They shouldn't have advertised "human-grade meats". If they did that, they deserve to be penalized. Of course the whole point of a class action suit is for people to cry about how they were wronged and it was terrible, and blah blah blah. But who really thinks that any dog food has anything in it a human would want to eat?

    And wait, what about fried chicken? One of their main arguments is that chicken skin isn't human-grade, but fried chicken has the skin on it, and most people do eat the skin.

    Class action suits mainly line the pockets of the lawyers. I think I was awarded two free movie rentals from one class action suit. I think the lawyers got millions in lawyer's fees.

    God knows what's in some of the processed foods we eat. I love chorizo....I don't want to know what's in it.

    If it says human grade it should be human grade. http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/prod...FYSK4Aodr0LqGA Humans can eat.

    Interesting. The only information I saw so far on law suites against Wellness. Well my fur babies have been doing fine on it so far.
    Life without my pets.......I would not want to imagine it!

    I'm reading a book called "Feed your Pet Right" by Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim. I just read a few days ago that anything labeled 'human grade' is not chicken breasts/thighs etc, but other parts of the chicken that people sometimes eat but not usually. They are still a by-product (as is all the meat that goes into pet food) because they are left over after all of the pieces humans do frequently eat are removed. By AAFCO standards, Wellness doesn't contain 'by-products' even if it technically IS a by-product. They have different terminology for what can and can't be used as ingredients in by-products and non-by-products.

    Does this website approve of any commercially made dog food? Isn't meal just meat with most of the moisture removed? I've always read that meal is actually preferrable as an ingredient to meat because of the dry matter base.

    The AAFCO defines poultry meal as "The dry rendered product from a combination of clean flesh and skin with or without accompanying bone, derived from parts of whole carcasses of poultry or a combination thereof, exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails."

    I can't find the definition of rendering.. I know it's in here though, I read it. I'll have to find it later, gotta go to work!
