BREAKING NEWS: May 11th, 2016 -- Hill's Pet Nutrition of Kansas has announced a voluntary recall of six of its products for sale across Europe and Russia, which contain unhealthy levels of iron. Iron in excess can affects the digestive system, most commonly in the form of diarrhea and vomiting. This recall comes on the heels of the 35+ recalls that have occurred in the past year. Our pets deserve better. Sign below and urge the FDA to enact stronger pet food regulations.
Goal: 85,000 Progress: 66,769

Pet food has long been a source of worry for pet owners and health officials. Reports of salmonella contamination are frequent, and threaten not only animals eating the food but also the owners handling it. Nutritional deficiencies and toxins have been found in pet foods as well — including melamine, which has led to multiple pet deaths.

The FDA’s new proposal includes safety requirements similar to those in place for manufacturers of human food, ensuring that manufacturers are proactive in their efforts to keep pet food safe. The current system is reactive; the government does not respond to pet food safety issues until after they are reported. In the past, it's taken weeks of reports from consumers before contaminations were discovered and recalls announced, and thousands of dogs and cats are believed to have died.

This long-awaited move by the FDA is likely to be opposed, and possibly diluted, by large pet food manufacturers and importers. Make your voice heard now: It’s past time for the FDA to help ensure that the food we feed our pets is safe!

Dear FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, M.D.:

As you know, the discovery and recall of contaminated pet food happens on far too frequent a basis. Recalls of pet food due to salmonella contamination are announced regularly. The melamine scandal of 2007, which caused the tragic loss of thousands of beloved pets and even made it into the human food supply via chicken feed, serves as a warning of how sweeping pet food contamination can be.

I am incredibly supportive of your proposal to enact stronger pet food manufacturing safety regulations similar to those in place for food for humans. No doubt you will receive many communications from organizations determined to dilute and weaken your proposal. I choose to support strong regulation to protect health and lives. Please continue to consider the health of our animals and our population, and enact these regulations faithfully and completely.

May 29, 2016 Amanda Munson My pets are a part of my family and they deserve to gt food that I know won't make them sick. It's not acceptable to have tainted of inferior quality food sold and fed to animals who depend on their owners or rescuer for food.

May 29, 2016 James Kelso It's time for strong regulations for our pets food.
May 28, 2016 Judy Schleuning Just like recalls for human foods, we should be made more aware of recalls for our pets food. It would be nice if the media would step it up also. Several months ago, my vet recommended Hills prescription. How would I have known about a recall?
