The food that comes in a plastic container with the label, “Walgreens Bengal Cat Food,” has been dubbed “the most addictive cat food in the world.”

It’s not just the fact that it tastes like the stuff of the jungle.

It’s also the fact the ingredients are made in China, with a lot of the ingredients being toxic. 

The dish is also filled with ingredients that are toxic to humans, such as MSG, aspartame, corn syrup, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise and mustard oil, according to a new report by the advocacy group Oxfam.

The report found that the ingredients in Bengal cat foods can have “grave and unacceptable human health impacts” and that “this is just one of many instances of the toxic ingredients being hidden and not widely known.”

In addition, Oxfam reported that “some ingredients” in the food were listed as “unsafe for humans,” and that in some cases “dangerous amounts” of these toxic ingredients were being used in the preparation of the food.

The Oxfam report notes that the products can contain “many potentially harmful chemicals that can harm people’s health, such that the risk of death is higher than with a healthy diet.”

The Bengal cat is a popular pet and is considered an exotic animal, according the Oxfam article.

It has a long history in Asia and was domesticated by the Mongolians.

According to the report, the Bengal cat has “shown its worth as a pet by surviving for thousands of years in China and Southeast Asia.

Today, there are about 10 million of these animals roaming the globe.”

The report noted that the Chinese government has “adopted a policy of allowing imports of all imported meat, fish and eggs.” 

While the report notes “some [companies] have not yet stopped imports, many have taken action to restrict imports, including by banning products containing the ingredients of Bengal cat.”

Oxfam is urging the U.S. to investigate the safety of Bengal cats in the U .

S.

While the Bengal cats were once revered for their unique beauty, Oxfords report noted they were also hunted to death for their fur, which was later used in traditional Chinese medicine.

In the United States, OxFam has been working to end the trade in Bengal cats, according an Oxfam spokesperson.

The organization is working with lawmakers in both chambers of Congress to push for greater restrictions on imports and bans on animal products.
