23. Unfortunately you're probably right. Who the hell ever even heard
of Menu Foods before this mess? I sure never did!

I think we should all demand the manufacturer's name be listed on EVERY package of food! I don't mean only pet food, but ALL FOOD!

Think about you know where that cheaper store brand XXXXXXX came from? NO. All it says is distributed by XXXX. IMO that's BS!
