I am a disappointed to see farmers and ranchers buying into the media hysteria around the use of lean beef trimmings to produce ground beef. This product does not go into dog food. It is 100% beef that is 90-95% lean. Before the process to seperate this lean beef from fat trim was discovered the trim did go into pets foods because there was no economical way to separate the lean from the fat by hand. The use of hydrolized ammonia to ensure the lean beef is free of bacteria is a process used on many foods, not just this product.

I hope all consumers, especially those within agriculture, will take time to learn the facts like California rancher Jeff Fowle did before writing his blog post on Commonsense Agriculture. If nothing else, please take time to read Jeff's post...
