    Default Bakers Dog Food

    This was posted on a different forum earlier - thought I'd share! If anyone feeds Bakers, please read this and reconsider :) it's scary!


    Would you feed your dog a food which contains THIRTEEN E numbers?

    Now, it's the law that dog food manufacturers have to state on their packaging for any bags over 10kg EVERY ingredient. They used to be able to say "EEC permitted colorants and preservatives". Now, here's the list in full:

    BHA, E320
    BHT, E321
    Propyl Gallate, E310
    Citric Acid, E330
    Potassium Sorbate, E202
    Propan -1,2-diol, E490
    Iron Oxide, E172
    Indigo Carmine, E132
    Tartrazine, E102
    Sunset Yellow, E110
    Quinoline Yellow, E104
    Titanium Dioxide, E171
    Carbon Black, E153

    In more detail:

    E320 - has been found to be tumour-producing when fed to rats. In human studies it has been linked with urticaria, angioedema and asthma

    E321 - banned for use in food in Japan, Romania, Sweden, and Australia. The US has barred it from being used in infant foods. So bad McNasty's have voluntarily eliminated it from their products.

    E310 - Banned from children's foods in the US because it is thought to cause the blood disorder methemoglobinemia

    E172 - Banned in Germany

    E132 - Can cause skin sensitivity, a rash similar to nettle rash, itching, nausea, high blood pressure and breathing problems. One of the colours that the Hyperactive Children's Support Group recommends be eliminated from the diet of children.
    Prohibited in Norway.

    E102 - TARTRAZINE - A trial on 76 children diagnosed as hyperactive, showed that tartrazine provoked abnormal behaviour patterns in 79% of them

    E110 - Sunset Yellow (E110) has been found to damage kidneys and adrenals when fed to laboratory rats. It has also been found to be carcinogenic when fed to animals

    E104 - One of the colours that the Hyperactive Children's Support Group recommends be eliminated from the diet of children. Banned in Australia, Japan, Norway and the United States.

    E171 - Banned in Germany

    E153 - Banned as a food additive in the United States of America. Suspected as a carcinogenic agent.

    And which food contains all these?

    Bakers Complete.

    Please tell everyone you know with a dog to STOP feeding them this food. As you would imagine, it causes hyperactivity - this is often misdiagnosed as a 'behavioural' problem, and I know of dogs who have been PUT TO SLEEP by owners who have assumed they have a 'bad dog'.

    It's disgusting that in these days where we are all very aware of additives and colorants causing bad behaviour in kids, these same colorants are being fed to animals causing the exact same symptoms.

    The only difference is that people don't have their kids put down - sadly, dogs don't get the benefit of the doubt, and the opportunity of a proper diet.

    Dayum! The average dog food manufacturer really doesn't care.
