    [​IMG] http://www.ctvnews.ca/business/lawsuit-filed-against-purina-claims-food-sickens-kills-dogs-1.2252961

    Lucido claims he fed his three dogs Beneful, and in a month, two were sick and one was dead.

    The suit alleges the food contains an animal toxin used in automobile antifreeze.

    In the suit, Lucido alleges that in the past four years, 3,000 consumers have complained online about dogs becoming ill or dying after eating Beneful, having shown "consistent symptoms," including stomach and related internal bleeding, liver malfunction or failure, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss, seizures and kidney failure.

    Is this food made in China? Didn't the same thing happen a few years ago with dog treats and food from China?

    I use Purina cat chow. Hope they don't put the same crap in it.
    But I've been using for years...

    That shitty ass food made my 2 dogs sick a few years ago. As soon as we switched to a different brand of food, the dogs were fine and have been fine ever since.

    I think that's like the cheapest shit you can get. I only give my dog Iams and never had any problems.

    The scary thing is how many pet food and treat products Purina has their hands in... https://www.purinastore.com/

    If this is truly an issue, what else of theirs may have it?

    Iams is regular dog food. I get it in 50lb bags at Tractor Supply.
    I only give her straight rice when her stomach is upset.
