No Time to Waste
We have 27 days to obtain 95,000 signatures. If we can pull this off, we’ll get something huge in return. The administration of U.S. government – for the very first time – will have to give pet food consumers a statement on why FDA allows pet food to violate law.
Pet food consumers have been ignored – on so many things with pet food and pet treats. Not one pet food regulation has changed to prevent another 2007 deadly recall. In 8 years of FDA investigation, the agency continues to be dumbfounded by Chinese jerky treats.
We ask for answers, but we don’t get answers. We get dismissed. Time and time again.
But right now – there is one answer we will be provided – if we rally (within the next 27 days).
We’ve asked the U.S. government administration – via a Whitehouse.gov petition – to require pet food to declare quality of ingredients. The FDA openly allows pet food to violate federal food safety law. Day after day, year after year – the pet food industry has been given personal permission from the FDA to use the most hideous waste imaginable and sell it to consumers as ‘pet food’ – without consumer knowledge.
We pet food consumers have screamed and yelled – and no one has heard us (or cared enough to listen). But right now – we have 27 very significant days left to finally force the administration of the U.S. government to hear us and to require a response.
On the Whitehouse.gov petition – if we reach 100,000 signatures within 30 days (deadline – July 5th, 2015) – it is required for the government to provide us with a response. Can you imagine?
Will the administration admit this is a terrible error and pet food consumers deserve to clearly know what they are buying? Or will the administration act in defense of FDA and give us a non-answer response? Aren’t you just a little bit curious of what they will say?
Don’t we deserve to know what they’ll say? Yes – we do.
The only way we’ll know is to reach 100,000 signatures by July 5th.
I know we can do this. We deserve this. All pet food consumers deserve to know what they are purchasing.
Maybe…just maybe, the response we get will finally be a leg to stand on to make significant changes in pet food a reality. We won’t know unless we show them we want this. It’s up to all of you.
Please share and share and share the links to both petitions. Most importantly, please share the Whitehouse.gov petition link immediately – far and wide.
