If you have watch YouTube or go online shopping on Amazon, chances are you have heard of the dog food company, Beneful. They advertise and promote their product quite well and aren’t afraid to get the word out there. However, a recent article from The Huffington Post, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carlotta-cooper/beneful-revisited_b_9851634.html, has raised some questions about the food and if it’s healthy for dogs. It is one of the most popular dog food companies out there, as they are part of the Nestle PurinaStore PetCare brand. They have been around since 2001, and feed more than 14 million dogs each year. The problems lies in its ingredients, which contain propylene glycol. The problem with this product is that it’s often misunderstood as ethylene glycol which can be deadly for dogs.
This all began in the begging of 2015 when a class action lawsuit was brought against Nestle Purina over Beneful. This is of great concern, as we all know, many people consider dogs man’s best friend. Because of this, they want to treat their dogs like they are part of the family. As a matter of fact, any dog lover will tell they are more than family. As of right now, the case is still in court and the allegations have flip-flopped quite a few times.
The positive thing is that the concerns of the customers have been heard loud and clear and they have made the necessary changes. It shows that they care and are willing to do what is right. They care about their product, and, of course, they care about dogs. It’s easy to see why people would get up in arms over it, as they have every right to do so. However, they will have real meat in the ingredients of the new product and the dogs will be happy and healthy. At the end of the day, isn’t that what it is all about, really?
You can’t please everyone, there is no question about that. However, you can make minor tweaks here and there to fix an issue if it’s out there. That is what they have done and the company is better because of it and will survive and thrive. For more information, visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beneful.
