In this informative, if somewhat bland, video produced by the FDA/CVM in September 2010, the host outlines the importance of feed safety and how it affects the health of animals and the safety of our food. I thought I would include it in my blog as it briefly mentions aflatoxins in poultry and cows milk as well as touching on the pet food recall involving the adulterated wheat flour with melamine.
As the FDA/CVM reminds us, we truly live in a global economy where the individual choices we make are important to each and every one of us including our four-legged furry friends and family, our two-legged feather friends and who could forget all our friends with fins. Well, you get the picture, right? Too bad the FDA/CVM doesn’t realize it’s going to take more than a warm and fuzzy PR video to convince me that they are doing everything they have in their power to affect real change to influence the health and well-being of the animals they are the Federal stewards of.
Poisoned Pets | Pet Food Safety News remains free (and ad-free) and takes me many, many hours of laborious work to research and write, and thousands of dollars a year to sustain. Even if all you can spare is a few dollars – say, the cost of a can of pet food – it will help keep the Poisoned Pets’ website alive.
