Some interesting news…a large New York law firm that often represents consumers is investigating the ‘Real Meat’ claims of pet foods. This could get ‘real’ interesting.
Milberg LLP website states: “Milberg is investigating pet food companies that sell products advertised as “real meat.”
“Many pet food companies advertise their products as made with “real meat.” However, pet foods often contain processed meat, meat meal or by-products that would otherwise be discarded as not fit for human consumption. These meats are far from those fit for human consumption and are far removed because of processing from their natural state. Because of the lower quality of the meat used and the processing it undergoes, these pet foods contain far less protein and instead have more added ingredients like carbohydrates.”
The website asks that pet food consumers that would like to learn more, to contact…

Phone number: (800) 320-5081
And the site includes a “Pet Food Claim Evaluation” form for any pet food consumer to fill out online.
This could get very interesting. I wonder how many people have purchased a pet food based on the made with ‘real chicken’ or ‘real beef’ claim, yet found out later ‘real’ could be 4D meat (sourced from dead, diseased, dying, and disabled – rejected for use in human food meats). I also wonder if this progresses to a lawsuit, if pet food manufacturers will finally have to prove the quality – or disclose the lack of quality of their meat ingredients.
Will Big Pet Food be eating their ‘Real Meat’ words? We will certainly be watching this one.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
