    Perhaps humans’ becoming ill will have an effect. The law may turn a blind eye toward the four-legged but it will not easily ignore the plight of the two legged. Thank you for staying on top of this, Susan. Be careful: this is a huge corporate entity.

    Wow! Just wow! You could make a movie out of this!

      I’ve said that exact same thing since I first learned of this. And none of the script would have to be made up…the real story is all that would be needed.

        Maybe you could get CHER to do another SILKWOOD !!

          My thoughts exactly

    This is insane! Thank you for all the time and energy you’re putting into this.

    So what about other Mars plants? (Less demand for dry food my foot.) What about Blue’s plant in Joplin?

    Apparently there is no more integrity regarding the safety and well-being of our pets, so………make your animal’s food, not that expensive btw.

    Isn’t Mars still obligated to disclose the redacted information? I’m not an attorney and don’t know but wondered after reading this: http://foiadvocates.com/exemptions.html . It would be wonderful if the legal team pursued the information that was redacted. That said, this is simply beyond heartbreaking. Their profits took precedence over the health of not only pets but humans. I weep for the innocent animals and people who were affected that worked there.

    And I bet a majority of the employees working at that Mars plant were immigrants or undocumented workers who had little or no recourse to complain for fear of losing their jobs or getting deported. They’re typically willing to take the worst and most dangerous jobs, like slaughterhouse worker.

    This is disgusting and despicable. Seriously, are there not yet large media outlets covering this? This is a corporation worth billions, yet no one in the media or financial industry is looking at this, much less making it public? I don’t believe that. There is absolute legal documentation of what is happening in Big Petfood. Can I contact the Washington Post or New York Times? Or maybe that is underway?

      Please feel free to contact anyone regarding this story. I would hope it would make national news. I have provided information to multiple news media – but nothing heard thus far.

    Please remind me what brands belong to Mars.

  10. JRM

    Would you please list the dog feed brands manufactured by Mars Pet Food. I would like to share this with brand names listed. Plenty of greed to go around. They could care less if they kill people and dogs. What lowlife scumbags. Boycott everything make by Mars.

    1. Susan Thixton Author

      Their brands will be listed in another post – more to come soon.

    Thank you for your hard work Susan. This is grotesque.
