V.I.P. Pet Mince laced with dangerously high levels of sulphur dioxode, tests reveal
Someone asked if V.I.P. Pet Mince was a good product, so I had a look and noticed the use of preservative 223. This is a sulphite that can inhibit absorption of B vitamins and cause thiamine deficiency.
Further research shows the company are aware of the dangers of this ingredient, which was previously omitted from the label.
The food was tested to contain excessive quantities of the preservative.
There’s an article on news.com.au which is well worth reading if you feed pet mince, and specifically mentions the level of sulphur dioxide in V.I.P pet mince.
Dry foods in Australia use the American AAFCO guidelines, which at the current time is not applicable for pet mince.
