Blue Buffalo and Purina Fight Over Food Integrity
Posted on Jun 10, 2014 , 0 comments
"Legal technicalities may allow them [Purina] to refuse to provide details about their so called 'independent' research, but the simple truth is that a product reflects the ingredients it is made with, and I can assure you that we've never purchased one kernel of corn or one ounce of poultry by-product meal ... two ingredients Nestle Purina claims to have found in our food."Nestle-Purina has not backed down on their assertion that Blue Buffalo is misleading their customers. A statement on their website says: “We stand by our complaint. As detailed in our lawsuit, independent test results show that Blue Buffalo is not being honest with pet owners about the ingredients in their pet food.” The problem with these statements is that—they could both be true. Blue Buffalo may not use any poultry by-product meal or grain in certain foods, but that does not guarantee that it will not end up in their food. Blue Buffalo manufactures their food at over five different processing plants that they share with other companies across the United States. When a company does not control their manufacturing process, the quality of the product can be compromised. At Healthy Spot, we do not compromise on food quality. We buy responsibly, so that you can also.
