When the tomatoes are delivered to the plant they go onto a water flow channel to transport them through the plant. This washes them as well. They then go to a pressure steam area where the skin is peeled off. In effect they are washed again. This becomes the Pomace.

They do seem to be doing a good job of it as i have noticed EP feeders and followers of the GDL are almost militant and almost seem brainwashed by their claims and wont hear any negativity about them because if they say it's so then it is!!
I'm not having a dig at EP/GDL or the people who feed their food,this has just been a general observation of mine.

And as for the tomato skins still containing pesticides, the company did say they were very well washed....just as we wash the fruits and veggies we buy at the grocery store. And if they don't get them free of pesticides with washing, neither are we.

I was going to point that out. Even organic foods can have sprays on them, depending on what's currently labeled as safe for organic use by whatever the current definition is, since the USDA and FDA don't have a definition for "organic." And what makes Mordanna so right about the supposing that tomatoes are not washed before being used in a prepared food? Is it because she's from Germany? Is she right because she is against the big-bad Purina? Because, as you are pointing out, Eagle Pack uses tomato pomace and EP is quite popular here but, according to Mordanna, they must be bad since they use tomato pomace and Mordanna, from Germany, knows all about american dog food preparation.

That description is a little confusing to read. It almost makes it sound like they are using the whole tomato, but they are just using the skins after they are peeled off.

They don't, they use the skins of tomatoes that are peeled for some other human use, probably canned stew tomatoes or something. When Eagle Pack says "the plant" I don't think they mean their plant, they mean the plant that the tomatoes are processed at
