Safe Pet Food
As everyone in the United States and Canada knows, there have been numerous recalls of various pet foods due to toxins within some of the ingredients. Unfortunately, too many animals died as a result of these toxins. It is too late to save the animals who perished but we can do something now to help.

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) introduced
the Pet and Human Food Safety Act on May 1 to provide more oversight and
regulation of the food industry. In a remarkable demonstration of how important
this issue is, the U.S. Senate approved a Durbin amendment on pet and human food
safety on May 2 -- just one day after the bill was introduced -- by a resounding
vote of 94 to 0!
