This article below was written by one of the partner who worked there.
This was absolutely one of the most fun companies I have ever been involved in – helped along by the fact that pets can be the world’s most satisfied and appreciative customers when you’re offering them a really good product. It was certainly a wild ride, originating with a group of family farmers and ranchers who were looking for a way to make selling high-quality meats in the organic and natural market a more viable proposition.

Just a Note.
~ AS OF DEC 31, 2008 this was in their foods. So, I would suggest calling them first to see if perhaps they may have removed it~
I would write or call them and ask them why they are using this. The reason companies who are using this, *claim* as to why they still put it in their foods, are not valid reasons scientifically. Most of the higher end food companies have removed it from their ingredients which speaks volumes about this ingredient not being being necessary.
Here is the link to the foods they sell:

Cat Foods……. http://www.petpromiseinc.com/products_cat.htm
If you look at the link under the list of ingredients you will see this listed in their foods.
MENADIONE SODIUM BISULFITE
Here is a short note about this ingredient. Please click on the link in the note, for more specific info.
MENADIONE SODIUM BISULFITE (VITAMIN)
Vitamin K3, synthetic vitamin K. Feed grade. Also listed as Menadione Dimethyl-Pyrimidinol Bisulfate, Menadione Dimethyl-Pyrimidinol Bisulfite, Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite and Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex. Unnecessary ingredient in dog food. This synthetic version of vitamin K has not been specifically approved for long term use, such as in pet food. It has been linked to many serious health issues.

Thanks for contacting me. There are absolutely no rendered meat products used in the making of Pet Promise from the main ingredients to the natural flavors or moisture in the cans. No worries. You can rest easy feeding your pets (or your clients’ pets) Pet Promise.
We don’t believe in feeding our pets anything we would not eat.
This article is no longer at the link, but if and when I have time I will search to see if I can find it on the Wysong site, or if I have it in my own files.
Do they manufacture their own foods?
They do not state the following on their website, but an article in the Denver Business Journal , April 20, 2007, states: “Pet Promise also had the benefit of a deep-pocketed parent company, the powerhouse Nestle Purina Pet Care Co…Pet Promise is made at Purina’s manufacturing plant…in Denver…’they own the Pet Promise brand’ Carter said of Purina.” <SNIP>
Please got to Wysong and read full document. It is very, very interesting.
