Best News Yet from the FDA

There have been so many death of pets from tainted food, that the FDA has FINALLY stepped in and will enforce strict new standards for companies that make pet food and animal food follow good manufacturing practices that include basic issues for sanitation and hazard analysis, etc. 

If the rules are not followed.

The new rules are open for 120 days for public comment and then 60 days later it would be adopted as law.  It would apply to all domestic and imported animal food.  The jerky treats  made  in China would have to adhere to stricter requirements.  

This is where it happens.











The pity us that at 600 pets died because of tainted food.

    1. I agree. At least now the FDA opened its eyes to the problem.

  2. It's just sad that so many dogs had to die or get sick while the FDA and distributors did little or nothing to inform the public.

    1. It's all about greed. if one of the inspectors had a dog that died because of the tainted food, the inspections would take place.

  3. I'm glad they're finally starting to talk about this. But I am appalled at how long this has gone on.
