  • Euthanasia drug found in dog food
    by Jon Rappoport
    https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/05/02/euthanasia-drug-found-in-dog-food/

    From WebMD (4/28/17): “Party Animal is recalling dog food that tested positive for a pet euthanasia drug…The voluntary recall affects the company’s Cocolicious dog food brand…The affected products include 13-ounce cans of Cocolicious Beef & Turkey dog food (Lot #0136E15204 04, best by July 2019) and 13-ounce cans of Cocolicious Chicken & Beef dog food (Lot #0134E15 237 13, best by August 2019)… Party Animal is working with distributors and retailers to find out if any other beef-flavored foods are still being sold, and if so, to recall them immediately, the company said.”
    .
    KDVR (FOX) reports: “Party Animal is recalling two lots of its Cocolicious dog food because it might contain pentobarbital.”
    CNN: “Party Animals, a California-based pet food maker, is recalling two lots from its line of Cocolicious dog foods after some cans in Texas tested positive for pentobarbital -- a chemical that's used to euthanize animals. In a statement on its website, Party Animal said a customer in Texas had given Cocolicious samples to a lab and the dog food tested positive for pentobarbital. Party Animal is asking for those test results, and ‘out of an abundance of caution’ is recalling the two lots of dog food sold nationwide. The company is also sending cans of its dog foods to an independent lab for testing.”
    .
    How would this drug, used to euthanize animals, find its way into pet food? The suggestion is: the pet food contains meat from previously euthanized animals (not cows).
    .
    Concerning a previous recall by another company, Evanger’s, the Detroit Free Press stated: “In researching the supply chain, Evanger's learned that ‘pentobarbital is very highly controlled, and that, if an animal is euthanized, it is done so by a veterinarian. Once this process has been done, there is absolutely no regulation that requires the certified vet to place any kind of marker on the animal indicating that it has been euthanized and guaranteeing that product from euthanized animals cannot enter the food chain’."
    .
    If this is true, we would be talking about euthanized dogs and cats somehow entering the pet-food manufacturing process---and pet dogs would end up eating dog and cat meat.
    .
    Veterinarians are selling euthanized animals to middle men, who in turn supply meat to pet-food manufacturers?
    There is another possibility. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) states, on its website: “Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year… Each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats).” Are shelters selling the euthanized animals? Do a few (or more than a few) animals end up in pet food?
    .
    Knoji.com states: “Cremation allows for the shelter to burn the bodies of pets. However, not all animal shelters can afford this so many send the bagged bodies of animals to a special part of the city landfill (garbage dump). The third option is not as common as it use[d] to be, and generally not done in the charity run shelters, but more common in city run ‘pounds’ - this is when the bodies are sold to research labs, dissection supply companies, or rendering facilities where they may actually be rendered down and put into pet food.”
    .
    “It might surprise some dog owners to know that dog meat has been used in dog food. This practice was relatively common until the late 1990's. Even today there are no laws preventing man's best friend from ending up in dog food.”
    “Please note the below information on dead dogs being used in dog food is true to the United States but may also occur in Canada and possibly other countries.”
    .
    “At some time or another pet food companies realized there was a cheap source of meat available... Dog Meat, and it could be purchased cheaply from animal shelters and the dog pound. These were places where dogs were euthanized weekly and there was always a need to dispose of the bodies. Nobody said anything and there were no laws preventing such from happening.”
    “However what started to tip the scales was that the veterinarians who performed the euthanasias at the animal shelters started noticing it was taking more and more drugs to put these animals to sleep. They realized that somehow pets in animal shelters were building up an immunity to the medications used to end their lives. Typically veterinarians are called to shelters every week to euthanize between 10 and 200 animals (or more in larger centers) so this was where they saw the problems develop quite easily.”
    .
    “As such several investigations were launched to see how pets were building up immunities to the drugs. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) launched an investigation. They found that sodium pentobarbital (the drug often used to euthanize pets) passed through the rendering process and ended up in pet food. They admitted finding the drug in some pet foods and stated ‘several retail feeds were confirmed for the presence of phentobarbital which could only have come from euthanized animals.’ Most of these investigations were exposed by television news groups such as Seattle's King 5, and KMOV in St. Louis, Missouri.”
    “What they exposed was something that many people already knew – dead dogs were being used to make dog food. Many animal shelters are government run. These poorly funded shelters found a way of generating extra income and disposing of the animal bodies all at once---Sell them cheaply to a [pet food] rendering plant. You will note your local SPCA probably does not do this.”
    This account suggests that the FDA already knows dog meat in dog food is an ongoing problem, and the FDA also knows that euthanized dogs, whose bodies contain the euthanasia drug, are used for dog food. This is not a new discovery or a puzzling problem.
    .
    If the FDA is scratching its collective head and trying to solve a mystery, that would be a pose.
    .
    It would be like saying, on a human level, “Well, we know several companies have been polluting the water and soil of a town for years, and the chemicals are exceedingly toxic and dangerous, but we’re not sure where the cancer clusters are coming from. Much more investigation is needed.”
    .
    It appears we’re looking at a situation where all the parties---government animal shelters, veterinarians, pet food rendering plants, pet food companies, and the FDA---know exactly what’s going on…and say nothing, or pretend surprise when a new case of dogs eating drug-poisoned dog meat shows up.
    .
    The FDA is famous for ignoring their own responsibility, when a medical drug they’ve approved, as safe and effective, starts killing people.
    .
    Apparently, this same know-nothing attitude applies to pets and the euthanasia drug they’re ingesting.
    I wonder how many humans, living on the extreme margins, eating pet food, have succumbed…

  • Not surprising. Most human food now contains "natural flavors" and despite companies being forced to enumerate all their other ingredients, they are allowed to refuse to tell you what those natural flavors are. "Natural" could even be cow and horse manure. I refuse to eat foods that mention it has this. "Spices" mentioned at the end of a list of specific ingredients seems to be another similar euphemism, and I avoid that too. Why would you eat something that a company refuses to tell you what it is?

    I suspect human parts. Extra money made for abortion clinics and maybe even some funeral parlors. You know, St. Thomas Aquinas said that the two worst sins are sodomy and cannibalism. The first we all know is rampant, and the second cannot be far behind. When you see a body laid out for a wake,  all you seeis the upper chest, head and arms. How do you know if the innards and legs are wholly there?

    Google the case of a high-schooler in Georgia, USA, several years back who died in a gymnasium. He was found upside down in a rolled up mat standing on end. They stored them in the gym this way and the students would often throw their shoes in them. It appears to be a mistake that he crawled head first into the mat, and did not realize how quickly one could die by being upside down. Anyway, google that, because they didn't expect to have the body exhumed for investigative purposes, and they found that in place of his innards were just newspapers. Somewhere in the chain, his innards were removed. It appears to have been covered up what happened to them.

    As well, hospices are now euthanizing with opiates, and if this makes it into the food chain, things like natural flavors  may not only have human flesh, but traces of these chemicals.

    You're grasping at straws there, JdK. I don't give credibilty to the first mentioned site, but Natural News is quoting very reputable sources, LifeSiteNews and ChildrenofGodforLife.

    You need to dig a bit deeper before you comment.

    Quote
    "We're not talking about what kind of pencils PepsiCo wants to use -- we are talking about exploiting the remains of an aborted child for profit," said Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of CGL, concerning the SEC decision. "Using human embryonic kidney (HEK-293) to produce flavor enhancers for their beverages is a far cry from routine operations!"
    Debi Vinnedge and CoGfL are not "fly-by-nights" and have an excellent reputation for their work here, particular on the issue of using embryonic human material in vaccines.

    How credible are you as a source for saying those sources are not credible?

    Join this petition! NHMRC, Director Baby Bee Hummingbirds: Shocking jewellery created from 'leftover' embryos highlights need for tough regulation on ART companies:http://citizengo.org/en/node/68939?tc=gm

    This is completely and utterly sickening!  Please help nip it in the bud.
    Some of what I read at the website:
    .

    This week it was revealed that an Australian company Baby Bee Hummingbirds, is taking embryos ‘leftover’ from Artificial Reproductive Technologies (ART) such as in-vitro fertilisation and turning them into “keepsake” jewellery for their parents. This action is an absolute travesty and shows contempt for the precious value of human life.

    .

    An embryo is a new human life in its earliest stages. The embryo is a new individual, a unique human being capable of full development into an adult. To purposefully destroy a human embryo, therefore, is to cut short its human life regardless of its early age.

    .

    With the many advancements in reproductive and biotechnologies, we know that many human embryos are routinely destroyed or experimented on for research. Now, revelations this week find that human beings are also being made into jewellery.

    .

    Founder of the Baby Bee Hummingbirds company, Amy McGlade reported that she has created about 50 pieces of jewellery using human embryos. The jewellery is created using “embryo ash,” a material made by preserving and then cremating the embryos.

    .

    McGlade stated: “What a better way to celebrate your most treasured gift, your child, than through jewellery?”

    .

    Directly destroying the life of the child to create a commemorative decorative piece cannot truly be called a treasure.  There is no doubt, that for the parents involved here, (whatever one's view is of ART), those embryos are created with a view to giving them life. That is the intention of the parents who come to the ART programs. That, we presume, is also the intention of the ART technicians. There is no goal at the time of their creation of destroying them for other uses.

    .

    Another question that we might raise is to the legality of the process? In Australia, trade in human tissue is prohibited by state law, and in ethical guidelines by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) — the National statement on ethical conduct in human research and Organ and tissue donation by living donors: guidelines for ethical practice for health professionals. However, Australian statutes and ethical guidelines about uses of human tissue have been established without specific regard to commercial activities involving products derived from these tissues leaving the likes of Baby Bee Hummingbirds actions, ‘up in the air.’

    .

    It is also significant to ask, how did the company get access to the embryos in the first place from ART facilities? If so, can anyone get access to these embryos? Further, was there money exchanged in this process between the fertility companies and Baby Bee Hummingbirds?

    .

    It is highly dubious that the commercial use of human embryos in this manner is ethically acceptable. Through this process, the human body, even in its tiniest form is being commodified and treated as a commercial object. Human beings, even in their embryonic form are not 'property' that can be purchased or sold for commercial use. While they (embryos) rely on others for a time for their life and flourishing, ultimately, they are under the custodianship of their parents.  As a community, we must find a better solution to support those couples facing the difficult and often agonising decision regarding what to do with their ‘leftover’ embryos. One that cherishes the life of the embryo and the hope in which it was created.

    .

    According to the NHMRC Ethical Guidelines (Paragraph 8.8 and 8.9), it is not desirable to leave embryos in storage indefinitely. The maximum time for which embryos may be kept in storage in Australia is five years with the option to renew consent for a further five years. If, after the maximum period of storage, the embryos have not been used, donated or allowed for use in research and no alternative arrangements have been made by the persons for whom the embryos are stored, clinics arrange for the disposal of the embryos. The NHMRC highlights that embryos that are disposed of should be done with respect and allow to succumb. In Australia, indefinite storage is not an option.

    .

    Whilst, the ethical question of the use and the creation of surplus embryos in the first place is an important one for discussion, it is a separate issue to what has been raised here with the Baby Bee Hummingbirds company. Here, the human embryos are certainly being misappropriated.  Intentionally killing the embryo to make jewellery is simply not the answer for parents to create timeless memories to remember their unborn children.

    .

    Please sign this petition now which will be sent to the National Council for Medical Research highlighting that the commercial use of human embryos is a breach of the guidelines and should not be sold to third parties for commercial use. We also ask the director of the Baby Bee Hummingbirdscompany to immediately end the production of this jewellery.

    .
