Did you know that FDA regulates that can of cat food, bag of dog food, or box of dog treats or snacks in your pantry? Do you know how FDA uncovered and confirmed the presence of contaminants in the 2007 pet food recalls?

As part of FDA Basics, FDA is hosting a webinar where you can learn more.  The featured speaker, Renate Reimschuessel, Research Biologist from the Division of Animal Research, Center for Veterinary Medicine, will discuss how FDA investigated and found contaminants that were imported into the United States and used as ingredients in pet food.  After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

The free 30 minute webinar will be held Tuesday, November 30 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

There are a limited number of spots available for the webinar.  Materials from the webinar will also be made available on the FDA Web site.

    I wonder if the punishment for dog food containment is the same as for human food.

    After reviewing the materials I think the FDA did a great job of identifying the problem, source and solution.

    In response to one of the above comments i feel that the punishment dealt out for dog food containment should be the same for that of humans.

    I agree completely, without safe premium pet food, out pets cannot be healthy. I am in south Portland, Maine and I think the FDA did an amazing job. Thumbs up the the FDA on this one.
