More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Been a pet owner all my life (which is getting to be quite a longevous statement these days).

    I realize the Interwebs spreads info much more efficiently than in the past. But I don't remember these recalls happening prior to the past 6-8 years. Certainly not so frequently.

    Kudos to FDA for being on this, my question though is what comes of it. Do people get fined, suspended, castrated?

    I'm getting sick of cringing every time I fill Gretel's dish. This ship needs tightened!

    Not a food I'm familiar with but it's always great that you post the latest recall info.

    BTW, we adopted a new family member today from the Humane Society, someone we saw when we were up there last weekend looking for our missing Vyonne. We knew we wanted this cat in our family no matter what, and she is curled up next to me asleep on the bed. You can blame me for the name: Carmen Meowranda.

  •  Why do people still buy so called "dog food"? (6+ / 0-)

    Dogs evolved over thousands of years to eat human leftovers. Now big corporations have convinced millions of gullible pet owners that they need to buy exorbitantly priced slaughterhouse by products and rotting corn meal drenched with chemicals to preserve its shelf life to feed their dogs or else they believe their dogs will be unhealthy.

    Meanwhile every couple of months there are these scandals about dog food that kill or sicken dogs, while such scandals in the human food chain are much more rare.

    Homemade dog food made with cheap human food is healthier and about 1/3 the price.

    I seriously just don't get it.

      "Dog food night" comes along about every three weeks or so. Like humans, dogs are omnivores, and the recipe we use reflects that.

      We cook up 18 lbs broccoli, 6 lbs yams, 9 lbs ground turkey, 2 lbs chicken or beef liver, and mix a little calcium powder into it.

      Takes about 2 hours to prep and cook everything. Then we go out for a burger while it all cools, because we don't much feel like cooking for ourselves at that point, plus the kitchen is fully occupied with the dog food process. When we get back home we mix it all together and pack it into about 18 quart-size plastic yogurt containers.

      The dog loves it, plus she's in great shape. What's not to like?

      here on these recall notices.  cooking dog food is easy and cost efficient.  if you work full time, it is harder to cook for your dog all the time, but really, i spend about 2 hours a week making meat and veggies and baking dog biscuits for my 2 mutts.  since i am retired, i do have the time but it is more than that.  it is the connection i make with them as i cook and they smell it and anticipate it.  for me, it was necessary due to allergies one of my pups has, so i started cooking for both of them.  there are lots of recipes online and our own contributor, noddy, as written about it too.  
      posting these recalls is so important and i thank the folks that do.  it is also a good time to be grateful none of them will effect my dogs.

        Itzl and Xoco have never gotten store bought dog food or treats.  It's really not hard to make them, no more time than I spend cooking my own food.

        And the confidence of knowing they won't be sickened or even killed by their food makes me very happy.

        Itzl, Xoco
