FAQs About Chicken Meal

Q: Is Halo saying that chicken meal is terrible for animals?
A: No, we believe that chicken meal can provide good nutrition.
Q. What about meat meals, such as beef meal, lamb meal or salmon meal?
A. Like chicken meal, other rendered ingredients may legally contain 4D ingredients and waste products. Halo’s philosophy is not to use those ingredients and waste products. Also, if an ingredient does not specify the species, for example meat meal,” it will not be clear exactly which animal flesh was used in manufacturing. Halo’s fresh ingredients are always identified by species, i.e. :lamb.”
Q: What about by-product meal?
A. Like chicken meal, by-product meals are rendered ingredients which may legally contain 4D ingredients and waste products. Halo’s philosophy is not to use those ingredients.
