FROM THEIR FAQ PAGE http://www.primalpetfoods.com/faqs.htm
Q: Are any of the proteins used in Primal formulas denatured or inedible?
A: No, Primal uses only 100% human edible, non-denatured proteins in all canine and feline formulas.

Q: What does denatured or inedible protein mean?
A: Denatured or inedible proteins are any meat and/or poultry product that has been deemed unsafe/inedible for human consumption.

MORE ON DENATURATION………… from Dictionary
Denaturation is a process in which proteins or nucleic acids lose their structure (tertiary and secondary structure) by application of some external stress or compound for example, treatment of proteins with strong acids or bases, high concentrations of inorganic salts, organic solvents (e.g., alcohol or chloroform), or heat. If proteins in a living cell are denatured, this results in disruption of cell activity and possibly cell death. Denatured proteins can exhibit a wide range of characteristics, from loss of solubility to communal aggregation. Denatured alcohol is an exception to this definition, as the term refers not to any alteration of the substance’s structure but to the addition of toxins and other things to render it undrinkable.

POSTED ON MY OLD FORUM BY A MEMBER:  Fri Mar 13, 2009

 

This is what I sent them and I’ll post their reply when (or if) I receive one:

Quote:

Where is Primal Manufactured?

I’ve been feeding both Primal and Nature’s Variety but NV’s recent policy to not disclose manufacturer location and caused me to not purchase from them anymore. I’d hate to hear that they are using Menu Foods facilities where they’ve had serious recalls. I don’t understand the big secret and what companies have to hide.

Where do you manufacture your food? I read on your site that all food comes from the USA except lamb and venison. I also read this:

“Primal Pet Foods 100% human grade raw frozen pet food formulas are produced in a temperature controlled, state of the art, certified USDA food manufacturing facility. The raw materials used in all Primal Pet Foods Formulas are procured from farms, ranches and raw food facilities that meet the highest standards in safety and sanitation. Primal Pet Foods formulas are produced in small batch runs to ensure freshness, safety and consistency.”

1. Where are your facilities?
2. Do you allow people and inspectors to visit so I can get independent information? .

Thank you, in advance, for responding to these questions. I am very concerned about what I feed my pack and would rather home cook than to buy food without having all of the information I need.

SECOND NOTE TO PRIMAL

From:
Sent: Monday, March 23, 2009 9:44 PM
To: matt@primalpetfoods.com
Subject: Fwd: Where is Primal Manufactured?
It has been almost 2 weeks since I sent my email. Are you planning to respond to this message? I am surprised when companies do not quickly respond to customer emails given how quickly their image can be tarnished on the internet.

PRIMAL RESPONSE TO MEMBER

My apologies for the delay in reply; we have been inundated with consumer inquires and are doing our best to keep up with the demand.

Per your inquiry; our foods are manufactured in our plant located in San Mateo, CA as well as a sister plant in Portland, OR. Both facilities are inspected by State Department of Agriculture officials and the Portland plant is inspected by the USDA.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for your support of our brand.

Regards,
Matt
