Dear Alpo,

As you know, with the current state of the economy and the declining American dollar, many people on fixed incomes face hard choices about how best to spend their retirement checks. Sadly, an increasing number end up eating Alpo, a product not intended for human consumption. I would like you to address this issue.

Won’t you please do the responsible thing and come out with “Alpo for Senior Citizens?” With a properly blended formula it should not be difficult to achieve a nutritionally balanced diet for the elderly.

No more would they be forced to eat food meant for dogs. Instead, with pride, they could buy an affordable can of food meeting the best needs of elder care. After all, why should our pets fare better than our elders?

I hope you will consider this modest proposal.

Dear Mr. Jorgensen,

Thank you for contacting the Nestlé PetCare Company. We always welcome questions and comments from our consumers.

Pet foods contain no ingredients that are harmful to people when ingested, however, we do not recommend people eating pet food. At this time Purina only manufactures foods for cats and dogs, and do not have any future plans to make human foods. However we will be happy to forward your comments to the appropriate departments for review.

Again, thank you for contacting Nestlé PetCare Company. Please contact our Office of Consumer Affairs in the future if we can provide additional assistance.
