It sounds good, doesn’t it? If you say a can labeled Senior Holistic Superfood that promised sharp vision, joint health, and a boosted immune system, you’d probably give it a shot. I would; so would senior Frank Viscido of Clearwater, Florida. He’s one of the many folks helped out by the Religious Community Services Food Bank in Clearater, Florida, and he’s one of many elderly folks who was mistakenly given dog food by a food bank.
“You’re a senior. This ought to be good for you,” Viscido remembered the well-meaning volunteer who gave him the can saying. “Looked good.” As it turns out, it was good for you, but only if your name is Cody the register dog and you’re used to eating golf balls.
Here’s the thing: the dog food probably isn’t all that different from your average canned beef stew. Sure it’s not a can of peanut butter sandwich, but it’s probably not that bad-tasting. There’s a very slim difference between Dinty Moore and Purina.
