The winner is – FDA. The loser is all petsumers.
For five years TruthaboutPetFood.com has issued the Stupidest Act in Pet Food award. Each year, the FDA has been voted as winner. We all lose when the regulatory body governing pet food is barely trusted or respected.
Pet food regulations are not consumer friendly. Federal laws are allowed to be violated in pet food manufacturing, nutritional content information on pet food labels are completely different than that of human food labels, calorie content is calculated differently in pet food than human food. Even ‘chicken’ in pet food means something completely different than chicken in human food.
While FDA and members of AAFCO hold ultimate responsibility for this pet food madness, regulatory authorities have been manipulated for decades by industry. Manipulated to such an extent the hole is very deep and it will be difficult to climb out of. Even if regulatory authorities wanted to properly represent the best interests of pets (and their families), they would be hard pressed finding a way to do so.
But it has to start somewhere. Pet food consumers will no longer accept things as they are (as they have been). FDA…AAFCO – may I suggest you begin 2013 with a new perspective. Listen to the needs and wants of petsumers. Stop allowing industry to tell you how to do your job.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
