Rendering Plants Products Have no Business in Your Cats’ Food

There are hundreds of Rendering Plants in the United States and they process millions of tons of dead, dying, diseased and disabled animals, fat and meat waste.

What would you find in Rendering Plants?

It’s not uncommon, in a rendering plant, to find such dead animals as; skunks, snakes, opossums, cat, dogs, circus animals, raccoons, horses and foxes. In addition, the Rendering Plants also transforms billions of pounds of decaying flesh and kitchen grease, from mainly fast food restaurants, into billions of pounds of commercial meat and bone meal, tallow and yellow grease and much of it ends up in commercial pet foods.

Rendering Plants sell their products to cat and dog food companies as well as cosmetic companies. Yet they claim that by removing dead and decaying animals from our city streets, they are doing a public service and not doing it for profits.

A peek inside a Rendering Plant

A look inside a Rendering Plant in California revealed A floor piled high with “Raw products” – thousands of dead dogs and cats, heads and hooves from cattle, sheep, pigs and horses, whole skunks, rats and raccoons – all waiting to be processed. In the 90-degree-heat, the pile of dead animals seems to have a life of their own as millions of maggots swarm over the carcasses.

Two men operating Bobcat mini dozer loading the raw materials into a 10-foot-deep stainless steel pit. A giant auger-grinder begins to turn. Popping bones and squeezing flesh are sounds from a nightmare you’ll never forget.

During this process, a soup produces a fat of yellow grease or tallow that rises to the top and is skimmed off. The product is then sent to a hammer mill press which squeezes out the remaining moisture and pulverizes the product into a gritty powder. Shaker screens sift out excess hair and large bones. All that is left is yellow grease, meat and bone meal.

Every day, hundreds of Rendering Plants across the U.S. truck millions of tons of this “food enhancer” to poultry ranches, cattle feed-lots, dairy and hog farms, fish feed plants and pet food manufacturers where it is mixed with other ingredients to feed the billions of animals that meat-eating humans, in turn, will eat.

Are your pets benefiting from these ingredients?

Don’t you think that your pet deserves better than to be fed ingredients from Rendering Plants? So now you know what to do when you see labels on your pet food with ingredients such as; beef and chicken fat, poultry by-products, fish meal, tallow, yellow grease, meat meal or meat by-products – avoid them.

Pets are shoved into the pit with flea collars still attached. The insecticide Dursban arrives in the form of cattle insecticide patches. Euthanized drugs given to pets and pharmaceuticals leak from antibiotics in livestock are also included.

Rendering Plant officials claim that it is not economical feasible to have someone remove the pets’ ID tags surgical pins and needles and plastics wrap from supermarket rejected meat, chicken and fish. Therefore all that plastic and metal become part of your pet food.

It’s fair to say that without Rendering Plants, our cities would run the risk of becoming filled with diseased and rotting carcasses. Fatal viruses and bacteria would spread through the population but it’s not safe for pet food manufacturers to use products produced at Rendering Plants.

Rendering plants produce products that are toxic to our pets. Cats and dogs are part of the raw material that Rendering Plants use to produce their toxic concoction and the drug Sodium Phenobarbital used to euthanize cats and dogs is not destroyed in the rendering process. Therefore this drug is part our of our pets foods.

All pet owners want is food for our four-legged friends that is wholesome, nutritional and free of toxic ingredients. The pet food companies have proven they are not going to do that.

They consistently produce pet foods that are killing our pets and millions of pet owners continue to buy their products and feed it to their pets. Pet owners have refused to invest the time to discover what goes into a bag of their cats’ or other pet food.

The pet food companies hope that we remain ignorant to the fact that we are buying a product that is sentencing our pets to a premature death. Our failure to learn just what is inside the foods that we feed our pets is what the commercial pet food companies prey on. We spend billions of dollars yearly on food that is sending our pets to a premature grave. If this is you, for the sake of your pet’s life this must stop.
