Do you know if your canned dog or cat food is made by Evanger's? This is often a well kept secret by both brands and manufactures themselves. Many consumers may have thought that "Party Animal" was "Family Owned & Thoughtfully Crafted!" in California. After all, this is what "Party Animal" appears to allude to in their claims.
Truth Of Family Owned
That all came to a crashing reality when Evanger's included tainted horse meat in their own products along with "Party Animal" products. To make matters worse, "Party Animal" had a USDA Organic label on their products and the sad reality was that is was euthanized horse inside.
Why does "family owned" matter if someone else is potentially sourcing and making your product for you? Why isn't the marketing or website FAQ stating the actual detailed reality of how the product is manufactuered?
How Much Has Changed?
The above is a screen capture from the "Party Animal" website. Where the food is manufactured still appears to be very...evasive.
An E-mail To the Family Owned Owner himself, Daryl
In effort to try and understand if "Party Animal" has changed to be more transparent, an e-mail was sent to Daryl at an assumed e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and their known e-mail address email@example.com.
I'm looking to confirm if Party Animal is still made by or manufactured by Evanger's? Are you still made at their facility?
If not, can you please confirm where you moved your manufacturing to?
Updates will be reported on regarding "Party Animal's" response or lack of response.
