    The REAL REASON dead and diseased animals go into pet SAVE US!

    You may be shocked to discover that because it's toxic, it's not fit to go into landfill. Here's an excerpt from Susan Thixton's report:

    When FDA was questioned about the massive amounts of dead/diseased livestock being sent to pet food, the agency stated: “So 3 billion plus animals should go to landfills?”
    Here’s the truth to why FDA ignores federal law and allows “3 billion plus animals” (dead livestock, road kill, euthanized animals) a year into pet food instead of landfills…
    Colorado government website states disposal of dead animals “must be managed in a manner that prevents the spread of infection and contamination of soil and ground water.”
    Texas states: “Animal carcasses must be handled properly to prevent harm to people, herds, flocks, water, and the overall environment. Several problems can arise if dead livestock and poultry are disposed of improperly:

    • Diseases can be spread to people and animals.
    • Carcass fluids can leach into and pollute groundwater (wells).
    • Bacteria and viruses can be transmitted to surface water (creeks, ponds, lakes, or rivers).
    • Obnoxious gases and odors can be emitted to the atmosphere.”
