I was so scared when I was reading this that my brand would be on it...this is scary to read I will never feed anything less than what I feed now if not raw...

The article is not written for or by the FDA... The author is a
pet owner with no credentials, or formal education mentioned, who has done her
own "research". I don't accept everything I read on the internet as 100% proven.

"When you read my articles on this site, you'll see I'm no journalist. However, I am a pet owner who knows that good nutrition makes a huge difference in the quality of a pet's life." About TruthaboutPetFood.com

I'm not saying her claims are not possible. But, in her article she even notes that the
company who produced the food with that "killed" her dog, with "chemical preservatives" that caused cancer, no longer uses the same ingredient.

You can follow the link to the actual FDA report. It would be better to read it
for yourself. Appendix - Dog Food Samples Used in CVM Pentobarbital Surveys and Analytical Results
particularly: "THESE RESULTS NEED TO BE UNDERSTOOD WITHIN THE FOLLOWING CONTEXT:

Sampling was non-representative. Samples were purchased from retail outlets in the Laurel, MD, area. Only dry dog foods with certain animal-derived ingredients were sampled. This selection pattern meant that the samples were not representative of dog food nationwide or even locally. It also means that the data cannot be used to draw inferences about dog food being produced and sold in the U.S. today. The concentration of pentobarbital, if present in any U.S. pet food, may be different than the findings of these surveys. The results apply only to the specific lots analyzed."
