Now, lab tests commissioned by the Clean Label Project are shedding light on what they say are shocking levels of contaminants lurking in some pet foods.
Jackie Bowen of the Clean Label project said, “Seeing lead levels that were 55 times those observed in the Flint, Michigan drinking water” was among the most surprising findings of the tests.
The Clean Label Project worked with Ellipse Analytics to test 900 of the bestselling pet foods and treats for over 130 contaminates and toxins. Lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium were just a few of the contaminants the lab says it found in a variety of pet foods.
This should be addressed more, how about new-non paid for- findings that contradict older studies as the allowable levels of contaminants are much higher in pet foods.
She does stress that animals can be more tolerant than humans to many contaminants, however she says it’s important to know what is in your pet food.
“Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, and Mercury are weighted most heavily within our star rating, followed next by contaminants like antibiotics and pesticides, followed by the rest. We more heavily weight the toxic metals because of literature outlining the potential for adverse health effect risks.”

I'm a cook at a butcher shop. We make our own dog food. The recipe was designed and approved by a vet. I feed my little dogs the stuff we make in house.
They love it!
