Angry Menu Foods even Nastier?

Did I hear it correctly this morning on the way to work, or was I sleep-driving? They were saying that the owner or CEO of Menu Foods allegedly dumped half of his company stock 3 weeks prior to the recall of the pet foods.

If this turns out to indeed be true, it makes a horrible situation a truly criminal one.

YEs, you heard correctly! Now the U.S. Congress will be having a hearing investgating this issue. Hopefully from all this negative, some good will come. After all, the pet industry is the number one fastest, and richest industry in the U.S. right now.

I am so sick of hearing all these dog foods,cat foods,chews being contaminated and killing pets.It just angers me!I can hardly believe that in the United States you could have mass poisonings due to pet food.That is just crazy!I hope the heck someone pulls there head out and does something about this.I had not heard about the selling of stocks........good grief.....what could be his punishment?Eat his own darn contaminated food!

I heard it was the CFO as well .. He said it was just a coincidence .. Duh!!
I am just amazed at what these people do to make money .. Greed and Growth .. I wonder if any of them had pets ..

I also heard they knew the food was tainted and still did not effect a recall until their test subjects - cats died ..
I agree let them eat their product .. I still cannot believe that only 16 pets died ..

The sad part is no matter how many pets died,and thank goodness the numbers are low-can you imagine all the vet bills these people had to pay just because they actually fed there pets just regular off the shelf pet food?I just think it's horrible!When I walk down the pet food aisle of a store,I just can not believe it even yet!All those bags of different kinds of food and you really almost are playing russian roulet with your pet by purchasing any of them.It's scary.......
