You would think that after all the shit that has happened with these commercial dog food companies they would actually shore up their business practices and TRY to put out decent food. Nestle Purina is probably one of the worst offenders and they didn’t disappoint. A man named Bradley Terry broke apart some chunks of meat in his dogs food tells of his horrifying discovery:
First, he noticed small moths inside the sealed, plastic container in which he keeps the food. Then, he broke apart the chunks of meat in the dog food.
“That’s when I noticed that there were, in fact, worms or maggots in the food itself,” Terry said. “[Cocoa] was about halfway through the bag. So knowing that she had been eating that for a month now I just — I couldn’t believe it.”
Maybe for some people uncovering maggots in your dogs food isn’t a big deal but for many pet parents, I can only imagine how disgusting it is. I think I found maggots and a spider in a box of Godiva chocolates once and that was bad…luckily in my case they were already dead. But we’re talking about live moving worms. Unsurprisingly, this is NOT the first time maggots have been found in Purina dog food:
Oh but don’t you worry! Purina had a perfectly good explanation and said these worms are ‘likely’ Indian Meal Moth Larvae. I don’t believe that for a second. Why don’t I believe it? Because it KEEPS ON HAPPENING and they don’t seem to care. However, they are making it a point to say that these worms are harmless. Perhaps Purina executives should regularly have their meals sprinkled with this larvae, I mean it won’t hurt, right?
In the end, Purina said they were issuing Bradley Terry a refund. Bradley says he’s staying away from Purina altogether. Can’t say we blame him.
Have you ever found anything this disgusting in your dogs food?
