There have been a shocking 45 pet food recalls since the start of 2014 according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. That's an unacceptable risk for pets and their families. Sign now to tell the FDA enough is enough.
Goal: 75,000 Progress: 54,750
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

Pet food has long been a source of worry for pet owners and health officials. Reports of salmonella contamination are frequent, and threaten not only animals eating the food but also the owners handling it. Nutritional deficiencies and toxins have been found in pet foods as well — including melamine, which caused a tragic loss of life in 2007.

The FDA’s new proposal includes safety requirements similar to those in place for manufacturers of human food, ensuring that manufacturers are proactive in their efforts to keep pet food safe. The current system is reactive; the government does not respond to pet food safety issues until after they are reported. In 2007 it took nearly a month of reports from consumers before the melamine was discovered and a recall was announced, and thousands of dogs and cats are believed to have died.

This long-awaited move by the FDA is likely to be opposed, and possibly diluted, by large pet food manufacturers and importers. Make your voice heard now: It’s past time for the FDA to help ensure that the food we feed our pets is safe!

Dear FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, M.D.:

As you know, the discovery and recall of contaminated pet food happens on far too frequent a basis. Recalls of pet food due to salmonella contamination are announced regularly. The melamine scandal of 2007, which caused the tragic loss of thousands of beloved pets and even made it into the human food supply via chicken feed, serves as a warning of how sweeping pet food contamination can be.

I am incredibly supportive of your proposal to enact stronger pet food manufacturing safety regulations similar to those in place for food for humans. No doubt you will receive many communications from organizations determined to dilute and weaken your proposal. I choose to support strong regulation to protect health and lives. Please continue to consider the health of our animals and our population, and enact these regulations faithfully and completely.

Mar 31, 2015 (Name not displayed) Thousands of pet owners are already making their voices heard with the pocketbooks. They are refusing to buy pet food products that aren't made in the USA, but even that is no guarantee. Only stronger government regulations can protect our pets.

Mar 31, 2015 Linda Vicknair My cat has hyperthyroidism which I understand is a by product of soy. One of many thousands of cases from which I feel sure pet owners are unaware of the source. I love my cat like my daughter and I have to watch her waste away due to unsafe pet food.

Mar 31, 2015 Marcella Barron Don't wait to make stronger laws to protect the pet food saftey regulations for the industry. If you've lost anyone you ever loved to these lax standards, you would fully understand how very important this issue is. Please fight for stronger regulations.
Mar 31, 2015 Rita Spangler There needs to be stricter regulations for our pets. I always feed my pets organic. I won't use big name, big store pet foods because of the lax regulations. I won't feed them anything less than human grade or anything that I wouldn't be able to eat.
Mar 31, 2015 (Name not displayed) Please enforce stricter regulations.fines and jail time if necessary and protect our pets (they are our family). If they are not allowed in human food then they don't belong in our pets food..
