Ethoxyquin is a commonly found preservative in dog food. Dog foods with fish meal will typically contain ethoxyquin , because the U.S. Coast Guard requires that all fish meal transported by boat be treated with ethoxyquin, according to USDA (PDF).Ethoxyquin was originally developed as a herbicide. So, why are we feeding this to dogs?

Good question. Some interesting info in Wikipedia on this. Found it interesting that it is in spices, (chili powder, paprika, & ground chili) just to keep its color.
