We the Pet People
We believe the Obama Administration should require the FDA to enforce the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (The Act) - as it is written - with pet foods. The Act clearly defines 'food' as that for humans and animals. Yet currently, the FDA allows materials from diseased animals, euthanized animals, downer animals, rodent feces and insect infested foods to be processed into pet foods/animal foods. Consumers are not warned their pet food purchases could contain illegal ingredients and often pay premium prices for such.
We request the FDA to be required to abide by The Act or request the FDA to require all pet foods that do not provide certification of compliance of The Act to be clearly labeled with a warning to the consumer.
