The decades old process of ‘re-purposing’ garbage into animal food will soon be available for consumer garbage! That’s right – your everyday household garbage can soon go towards feeding animals. (Yes, this is my bad attitude talking…having a little fun with FDA stupidity.)
Re-purposing is the common language term used for the recycling of dead animals, rotting food, rodent infested food and more into animal feed/pet food ingredients. They try to make it sound fancy and meaningful; food had a purpose, then it spoiled or rotted – but no worries, we can re-purpose it! Food has meaning again.
Now, the ever so popular industrial re-purposing of food waste is available for consumer waste. We don’t want all that garbage going to landfills do we?
The truth: nasty, horrid, illegal material is being re-purposed into pet food and animal feed every single day and not one person of authority is doing anything about it. The FDA openly tells industry to ignore law and dump your waste into animal food. As example FDA Compliance Policy 675.200 Diversion of Adulterated Food to Acceptable Animal Food use allows the re-purposing of “pesticide contaminated” food, “industrial chemical contaminated” food, food “contamination by filth” to become animal food/pet food. And of course the worst offenders – the various FDA Compliance Policies that allow diseased and dead animals to be re-purposed into animal food/pet food (CPG 675.400 and 690.300).
None of these Compliance Policies are legal – none of the pet foods or animal foods that utilize these ingredients are legal. Adulterated food is still adulterated – even after you ‘RePurpose It!’.
On an industrial basis, RePurpose It! happens every single day with a multitude of food wastes and animal material wastes. Pet Food consumers are never warned if their pet food contains a ‘re-purposed’ ingredient.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
