Someone just called because a pet food company wanted to check if CWS had been passing negative remarks about their brand of food. Apparently someone had called them and said a "CWS member" had made a remark about the food being not particularly good.
First of all, CWS does not promote commercial products which is why we have steered clear of pet food promotion or to say X brand is better than Y brand. We're a non-profit and people should make up their minds about what constitutes good or bad food, and if you ask ten different people you're likely to get ten different responses or what food if good or bad. As a result, we don't disparage brands either. The best person you can and should speak to about what your cat is eating is your vet and certainly you can do research and see what works best for your cat because every cat is different.
Secondly, I explained that we have no idea whom this CWS member is. There are hundreds of CWS members out there who pay a membership fee to be a member. This does not mean obviously that their opinions represent the Society's. I've asked them to just check whom it is as well.
