Evanger's & Against the Grain

Postby TamanduaGirl » Sun Feb 19, 2017 5:28 pm

In its recent press release announcing a limited product recall, Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc. stated that the beef for its Hunk of Beef product came from a “USDA approved” supplier. However, the FDA reviewed a bill of lading from Evanger’s supplier of “Inedible Hand Deboned Beef – For Pet Food Use Only. Not Fit For Human Consumption” and determined that the supplier’s facility does not have a grant of inspection from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The meat products from this supplier do not bear the USDA inspection mark and would not be considered human grade. USDA-FSIS regulates slaughter of animals for human consumption only. Testing by USDA-FSIS of Evanger’s Hunk of Beef confirmed that the meat used in the product was bovine (beef).


When you read those inspection reports you learn that FDA found…

Wheeling, Illinois Evangers plant…(only highlights of the report)…

“Condensate dripped throughout your processing facility from the building framing, ceiling, walls, and from tarps suspended above food processing areas, including condensate dripping directly into open cans of the in-process low-acid canned dog food product Hunk of Beef, and also into multiple open totes of raw meats…”
“You lack operating refrigerated storage facilities or other means of controlling the temperature exposure of raw meats during thawing, storage, and processing.”

Markham, IL Evangers plant…(highlights)…

“Frozen raw meats for processing are prepared while having direct contact with the insanitary, bare, paint peeting and unprotected concrete floor of the processing facility.”
“On 1/31/2017 employees were observed cutting raw chicken parts on untreated wooden building construction lumber.”
“The floors throughout your processing facility are pitted, cracked, and otherwise damaged causing pooled water in areas where food is exposed including where open cans of in-process Cooked Chicken Loaf and Hand Packed Chicken dog food are staged on a wooden pallet immediately upon the damaged floor.”

As I suspected, they used euthanized farm animals from paid haul away services

Evanger’s marketed the recalled dog food as human-grade, but the meat it was made from was labeled “inedible hand boned beef,” meaning it was unfit for human consumption and therefore NOT human-grade

Evanger’s meat supplier, Bailey Farms, also operates a dead livestock removal service, which is likely the source of the pentobarbital-laced horse meat that wound up in the dog food that sickened four dogs, and resulted in the death of 1 of the 4
