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: 55,205
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.

May 24, 2015 Charles Kirkpatrick Please make stronger pet food regulations. Animals have shouldn't die from eating pet food. The main letter just briefly touches some of the issues I've read about concerning poor safety standards involved in the pet food industry. Thank you

May 24, 2015 Sharon Herman Please enact tougher safety requirements for pets. Anyone who has a pet knows that a pet is part of the family. They deserve to eat safe food, just like humans. Too many pets have died due to contaminated food.

May 24, 2015 Candy Peterson Thank you for proposing this long overdue safety regulation pet foods. Please do whatever it takes to ensure it becomes a law!! Companies neglecting basic safety standards should be prosecuted; this is a serious issue and should be treated as such!

May 23, 2015 Kathy Ramos If I keep my pets well taken cared off, with vet visits and such, I expect their food to be safe too. They deserve safety just as much as the next living thing, and if they get sick or die, it also repercutes with the people that surround them.

May 22, 2015 Pamela Gray The lack of policies ensuring our pets are eating top quality food and the fact that humans are handling the less than top quality food is unconscionable. Please don't let this be another issue that gets "lost"; it is far too important for that!
