(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
