An info-graphic that explains the serious federal law violations allowed in pet foods/animal foods, violations the consumer is never warned of on product labels. Easy to share with your elected officials.

This graphic is for all of you that want to help raise awareness to the absurdities allowed in pet food. This is the same concerns our Citizen Petition to FDA was about (rejected four years later). The law should be enforced with all animal foods, not just pet foods. Consumers should be warned to what they are purchasing.

Should you wish to send an email/letter to your elected officials (in Washington and your state government officials), below is a sample letter.

Dear __________,

As a concerned pet food consumer, I would like to bring to your attention serious violations in food safety law. As example, federal law does not allow food to contain meat sourced from an animal that has died other than by slaughter or meat sourced from a diseased animal – but FDA Compliance Policies allow this meat in pet food. Please see this info-graphic providing the laws and the clear violations of law allowed by FDA:

As my Representative, can you please explain how this is allowed? Why are consumers not warned that these types of ingredients can be used in pet foods?

I would appreciate your investigation of this issue.

Thank you,


Thanks to all of you (in advance) for sharing this info-graphic and writing your law makers.


Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
