Pet Food Still At Risk

Check out Pet Food Recall: Buyer, beware By Christie Keith. It's very disheartening to know the pet food industry is still unregulated.

The federal legislation, for instance, relies on manufacturers to voluntarily recall contaminated pet food. “As long as it’s voluntary, there will always be breaches,” says Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at New York University and author of the forthcoming book “Pet Food Politics: The Chihuahua in the Coal Mine,” due out in September. “There will be breaches anyway, but voluntary doesn’t work as well as regulated.”

It was because Menu Foods dragged their feet about voluntarily recalling their poisoned product that Whiskers died. Voluntary doesn't work!!!!!
