Important January 11, 2021, UPDATE below.
The pet food recalls continue. FDA Alert: Certain Lots of Pet Food from Multiple Brands Recalled for Aflatoxin. From the FDA website: specific pet food products manufactured by Sunshine Mills under several brand names, may contain unsafe levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is produced by the Aspergillus flavus mold, which can grow on corn and other grains. At high levels, aflatoxin can cause illness and death in pets. Symptoms may include sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice (yellowish tint to the eyes or gums due to liver damage), and/or diarrhea. In severe cases, this toxicity can be fatal. In some cases, pets may suffer liver damage but not show any symptoms. Brands include, Family Pet Meaty Cuts®, Heartland Farms®, Champ®, Field Trial®, Good Dog, Hunter’s Special®, Old Glory®, Paws Happy Life®, Pet Expert, Principle, Retriever®, River Bend, Sportsman’s Pride®, Sprout®, Thrifty®, Top Runner® or Whiskers & Tails. For a complete list, with Lot Numbers, go to the FDA web page: Sunshine Mills, Inc. Expands Previously Announced Voluntary Recall of Certain Pet Food Products Due to Potentially Elevated Levels of Aflatoxin.
JANUARY 11, 2021 UPDATE: After more than 70 dogs have died and 80 have gotten sick after consuming Sportmix pet food, the FDA has expanded the pet food recall to all pet foods containing corn manufactured by Midwestern Pet Foods. This food has an expiration date on or before July 9, 2022. The updated list of recalled pet food products (as of January 11, 2021) includes lots of the following pet food products, if the date/lot code includes an expiration date on or before "07/09/22" and includes "05" in the date/lot code, which identifies products made in the Oklahoma plant:
Lot code information may be found on the back of bag and will appear in a three-line code, with the top line in format "EXP 03/03/22/05/L#/B###/HH:MM" For more updated details go to: FDA Alert
Want to avoid all these recalls? The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent danger to your pet is -- STOP feeding dry kibble pet food. In our "wholistic" opinion, dry kibble pet food containing grains is the least nutritious form of food to feed a carnivore. It is nutritionally equivalent to feeding meat-flavored cookies to your child. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:

Most of us only know the Western medical paradigm of supplementing the symptoms. In allopathic Western medicine one introduces a substance into the body to produce an effect: Product A for symptom A, Product B for symptom B, etc. This is clearly the product doing the work. The advantages are quick resolution of the symptoms and relief from any pain. The disadvantages are never addressing the original cause of the symptom, creating a dependency on the product (drug or supplement), potential side effects and taking too high a dose causing toxicity. We are so conditioned by this Western medical paradigm that it is hard to think any other way. Optimum Choices' mission is to educate others using totally "wholistic" methods to attain Freedom From Illness.
Instead of supplementing the symptoms, our revolutionary whole superfood products work in a totally "wholistic" way. They nourish and balance ALL the glands and organs of the WHOLE body, especially the brain. When all the glands in the brain are properly nourished and balanced, it will be the body/brain that will scan the remaining secondary glands and organs and bring them back into balance too. A healthy, balanced body has no need for symptoms. This is clearly the body/brain doing the work and NOT the product. In spite of our attempts to re-educate people, we still get asked:
Because normalizing and balancing ALL the glands and organs of the WHOLE body will nutritionally support ALL the above health challenges, obviously the answer is Yes, they will help. But people simply do not believe it and ask us anyway. Here are some results from our happy clients:
The above are just some of the unbelievable
testimonials we get for
BioSuperfood for people,
pets and Cellular PSP. Since each
body responds uniquely,
results will be different. You do not have to ask us if our whole
superfood product will help with your or your pet’s health challenge?
You already know our answer is, YES, the potential
benefits are unlimited. The only question is how much will it help? We
cannot give you an exact answer because we are not doctors and we have
no knowledge of your or your pet’s genetics, health history, nutrient
deficiency, severity of symptoms, diet, lifestyle, etc. If you are not
satisfied using the Western medical paradigm of supplementing the
symptoms, you have a
chronic condition no treatment has resolved or just plain tired of
feeling sick all the time, perhaps you are ready to integrate your
Western medical protocol with our truly "wholistic" paradigm and use our
whole superfood products for yourself, your family and your pets (furry
children) towards achieving Freedom From Illness.
