ABC News: Pet Food Maker to Take Financial Responsibility for Pet Deaths From Poisoning

"Instead, he said the company, which manufactures nearly 100 brands of dog and cat food, will immediately begin testing any 'suspect raw materials' to identify any additional contaminated products."

Not that they've gotten to the bottom of this yet, but what confidence do we have that there is adequate testing for "raw materials" used in human food? If the testing were at the raw materials level (rather than the finished product) couldn't this problem have shown up for human food testing, or do they even do such things?

Are we entering a time when each "consumer" must become an expert on exactly where each menu item came from: This country is OK, that one not, this farm in California has a good rep, but not that one.

Well, if all future research grants don't get funneled in to some variant of the global warming scare, maybe this is something that should be looked into, huh?
