Default FDA HOW TO for reporting pet food complaints

Boy are we in trouble:
http://www.fda.gov/cvm/petfoods.htm#...dContamination
The FDA regulates that can of cat food, bag of dog food, or box of dog
treats or snacks in your pantry. The FDA's regulation of pet food is similar
to that for other animal feeds. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
(FFDCA) requires that pet foods, like human foods, be pure and wholesome,
safe to eat, produced under sanitary conditions, contain no harmful
substances, and be truthfully labeled.

,,,,,,,,,This is a HOW TO for filing a pet food complaint. There's pictures
too for those of you who can't read. smirk

..........Looks like they've spent waaaaaay too much time worrying about all
that raw food that is killing our pets. Bah.

Also FDA has a pilot program going for human food recalls:
http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/pilot.html
FDA is conducting a six-month pilot program to educate and assist consumers
in identifying recalled food products that may pose a significant health
risk. FDA wants to help consumers identify recalled food products that pose
a significant health risk by posting a photo of the principal label panel.
FDA believes that by posting a photo of the label the consumer will be able
to more easily identify and avoid these potentially hazardous food products.
This pilot is one among other measures taken by FDA to proactively educate
the public and improve food safety. [..] The pilot is to last six months,
beginning in mid-February 2007.

Please let them know that pet food should be included in this notification
program.

As for you Canadians, start agitating for some kind of pet food regulation.
