I've been very lucky that I don't feed my cats any of the products on these lists. The mention of Hill's being on the list a while back gave me a good scare (I feed them Science Diet) but so far so good.
It's really awful, isn't it? It's gotten so that you feel like you're taking a chance with your pets' health when you feed them any commerically-prepared foods.
My old girl has been getting lots of chicken. I'd give her only that but I'm concerned that she wouldn't be getting all of her nutrients, so each day I give her something that's not on any list--currently. Pedigree or Beneful usually. I've finally found a dry food she'll eat, but even that isn't a sure bet these days.
And I do think our own food supply is probably a lot less safe than the FDA will ever let us know.
