(ANIMAL WELFARE) Is the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally getting involved in the safety of consumer pet products? In light of recent events, including the recall of Chinese pet products that caused sickness in nearly four thousand dogs and cats across the U.S., the FDA has proposed a set of rules that would dictate the regulation of pet food and farm animal feed for the first time.

The new rules would help prevent food-bourn illness in both animals and humans, and would drastically reduce the probability of something like the recall pandemic from happening again. Feel free to look over the proposed regulation here to post any relevant comments concerning its future establishment, and be sure to read the article below for more details on how you can be involved in keeping your companion safe and healthy! — Global Animal

  1. good luck avoiding back trafficking away from unknown imports .. tell me how many know what a sister company is or how many products are sent from a unhealthy company say corn from china .. ya don’t what about the fact it would be cheaper to hide it was from china and was sold under the radar ..good luck i say if its owned by a company the buyer should be able to tag every location every company to each nutritional fact .. until then you wont know where it is from

    i rather KNOW where my ingredients are from location wise BY LAW same as the nutritional value but should be mandatory put online for pet owners and the Consumers to know or research .. not what is in it but what where what side companies not just for consumption but toys health byproducts at least then we the consumer if enough of us find something unsafe we can then speak up against it rather then wait for a massive dead pet alert

    FDA ha!

    FDA are the same ones who took and put Ritalin off the market and brought back the same thing called it Adderal (both are Methaphetimines) or meth in the drug trade and mothers and children became addicted to both Methaphetimine formulas which was why in 4 years Ritlin was recalled in the 1st place .. but 10 years later Adderal came back .. how does a Banned drug
    get back in the usa in the first place

    Nutrasweet a invention and scheme by D Cheney FDA recalls Due to medical cancer “related” amounts and when he gets in the white house as vice he brings it back makes 1\2 the potent amount and calls it Aspartame
    so 1\2 the cancer and now talk about how FDA wants to BAN sugar ..

    so let the readers know whats in their foods and pet foods..if you dont care what is in your foods then let your family suffer

    but FDA wont help alone

    NSA is all over so where were they when chinas pollutant levels were rapidly reaching Major Toxic levels they knew by Key words alone .. so why was this not stopped .. sad tho my post will be removed or ignored such is the backbone of society
