    Dirty jobs related to pet food industry

    Post  Heather on Thu Apr 30, 2009 10:01 pm

    I seen a part of Dirty Jobs tonight (do you have that in Canada?) and the host had on a rendering plant that takes all kinds of animals and rotting parts and makes it into meat and bone meal. He said it's fed to chickens and turkeys but then said really it's fed to whatever depending who buys it. The whole animal is ground up- fecal matter and all and then cooked down. The grease is then skimmed off the top and used as "yellow grease" and then I suppose it's dried. The whole process looked disgusting and I couldn't watch alot of it. What a wake up call to people who feed cheap dog/cat food. THAT'S where the main ingredient comes from! I've seen pictures of the ground up animals but this was quite different. Yuck!

    I love that show! I have a major crush on the host. Embarassed

    The SO and I watch every Mon PM, haven't seen that one yet. Maybe it's on next week.

    I wish EVERYONE would see that.. maybe they offer it on YouTube or somesuch and we can post it around for people? Knowing exactly what goes into their dogs food might be the one thing that changes their minds about the shit (literally, apparently) they are feeding their pets.

    Was the section really that short? That seems cut and there were parts left out, yeah?

    I'm still passing this around to pet sites. Gah, gross.
