Is Your Dog a Cannibal? He Could Be Without Knowing It, According to Slate

A headline in Slate’s story about dog food asks, “Does your pet food contain dead pets?”

It’s a compelling line, but before the story answers the question, it presents some disturbing facts about dog food and its dirty little disgusting secret: rendering plants, who make and sell the meat and bone meal that is often used in dog food.

What is a rending plant? It’s a place that accepts all the parts of cows and chickens and things that are not fit for human consumption under Food and Drug Administration regulations — the hide, bones, brain, feces, udders, the digestive system and it contents, and so on.
