    AHA! Now I know where I recognize Susan Thixton from! She wrote a book called Buyer Beware about pet food.

    Just FYI, the October issue printed part (?) of a letter from Hilary Bencini of Weston, FL, there was no response under it though from CR. Is that anyone from here? It's just a paragraph on page 5. Someone got their attention .

    I'd scan it but I'm at home on vacation until Thursday. Guess I'll have to type it, so here what it says.

    You say commercial pet foods with labels such as "100% nutritious" are adequate for most healthy pets. That may be, but when the first three listed ingredients are ground corn, chicken by-product meal, and corn gluten meal, I'd rather spend a few more dollars for a "premium" brand with the main ingredient a quality protein source. If I wouldn't want to consume the ingredients in the cheaper food, why would I feed it to my pets? Hilary Bencini Western, FL.

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...
