And how does metal get into pet food?
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, some manufacturing activities “may unintentionally introduce hazards into the animal food (e.g., chopping with a metal blade may introduce metal fragments; conveying with a broken plastic leg cup may introduce plastic fragments; or, an improper bin clean-out may result in nutrient toxicities or deficiencies in animal food).”
