Beneful controls is procedures for producing its products by having a tracking system for the ingredients that are included in their dog food. Beneful also has strict standards for ingredient specifications, product safety, sanitation and manufacturing practices. The Beneful website includes links and videos of encouragement for people to play with their pets with games and ideas. It also includes maps of where someone could take their dog to go play.
Although the claims are not confirmed to be true, there have been numerous complaints about Beneful dog food making owners' dogs sick with illness or possibly dying. The recorded symptoms of the ill dogs were all similar and included laziness, weakness, glazed over eyes, not interested in drinking water or eating food, white gums, and loss of control over bodily functions. It was recorded that Beneful is taking matters into serious consideration and that they do not wish to damage the healthy reputation that it currently has. It encourages people to notify Beneful, email Beneful, or mail Beneful if this happens to someone's dog. The FDA has yet to take matters into their own hands and has failed to respond to the several complaints that Nestlé has been receiving.
