As we’ve written before, these are self-reported numbers. But we asked people to check the food against the recall list, to list the food and give us the names of their veterinarians. The majority did all of this. We are not saying these are confirmed cases, by any means. But we have believed from the first that if nothing else these numbers show the tragedy is much bigger than the official reports.
