NaturalNews.com’s pet treat testing found lead, cadmium, and mercury in pet treats in dangerous levels. Here are the products they tested and what they found.
Mundy Rawhide Gourmet Dog Treats made by Cadet (manufactured in China) tested to contain “an astonishing 1.8 ppm of lead”.
Ocean Whitefish cat treats made by PureBites tested to contain 0.5 ppm mercury.
Natural Rawhide Rings dog treats made by PetSafe (manufactured in Taiwan) tested to contain over 1.5 ppm lead.
The NaturalNews.com article shares “Just to give you an idea of what that really means, just one rawhide ring weighing 8 grams would expose your dog to over 24 times the daily lead limit set by California Proposition 65. That’s almost a month’s worth of lead in a single pet treat.”
Some of the products that tested clean of heavy metal contamination include Hill Country Fare Dog Food, Friskies Can Cat Food, and Loving Pets Premium Duck Filet.
