  1. My pets are my children. I expect pet food to be…
    • Made with the same quality of ingredients…
    • Held to the same Good Manufacturing Practices…
    • Held to the same transportation practices…
    • Warehoused the same…
    • And labeled the same…
    …as food for any other member of my family would consume.
    My pets are my children!

  2. I THINK IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING, THAT WE DEMAND SAFE QUALITY FOOD FOR OUR PETS FOR THEIR HEALTH AND THAT WE CAN SAFELY ELIMINATE UNEXPLAINED ACTIVITY AND PET DEATHS DUE TO UNSAFE INGREDIENTS IN OUR PETS FOOD. WASTE NO TIME AND GET WITH IT NOW.

  3. Pet food labels should be similar to the labels that are on food for human consumption. They should contain the number of servings per container with the nutritional percentages per serving. Because of the number of pets that have health issues the following items should be included on all labels. Also labels & feeding info needs to be large enough for people to read without having to resort to finding a magnifying glass. Also, the country where the product was manufactured needs to be clearly written on the label. In addition all of this information also needs to be on the company’s website. Values on the labels need to be per serving and NOT minimum/maximum values. The following items need to be included:
    Ingredients; percentages of protein, carbohydrates, fat per serving; grams of fiber and phosphorus; number of servings per container and size of each serving.

  4. Lisa Carroll made excellent points. her comment about larger print – many cat owners like myself, are partially sighted. why don’t manufacturers of animal and human food realise that many partially sighted people like/NEED to know what their animals and themselves are eating. all food products make huge profis for most manufacturers – would it be so hard on the shareholders if a bit more was spent on ACCURATE, LEGIBLE labelling? even my friends with 20-20 vision, find labels hard to read.

  5. It is time the FDA REGULATE and demand higher quality of food for our Pets just as the FDA regulates food for human consumption.
    Standards for producing, storing, and labeling PET food must improve greatly to Prevent future senseless deaths.
    China has poor sanitary laws, poor regulations for ingredients allowed in food as does Many Pet food producers here in the USA. when MoNEY is the Motivator most companies CUT Quality and our pets get poor quality food.
    Transparency of all ingredients in the food must be labeled Clearly and better quality if food needs to be produced.

  6. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I began to realize that not all food was manufactured equally. I am horrified at the state of the pet food industry. We have been blessed thus far with our “babies”. This problem has now caught my attention and I will be spreading the word as far and wide as I possibly can. Thank you all for bringing this to the forefront!

  7. I am very encouraged to learn tgat the FDA finally is adressing the quality of pet food in the U.S. I have been a pet owner and volunteer since 1970 and have seen the serious health issues caused by commercial pet food. While living overseas for 20 years and feeding my pets home cooked food, theyhad no
    digestive or urinary track issues. I brought four pets back to the U.S. in 1988 and witnessed their early deaths from health issues while feeding
    them Science Diet, the food recommended by vets. Pet food should be regulated in the same way as human food with no chemicals added and
    clean and healthy ingredients. They also should contain no GMO products
    and especially no ingredients from China. Pets are very important family
    members and should be able to eat a healthy diet as close to what their
    ancestors ate in nature as possible. Pets have become family members in a large portion of the U.S. population. Pet food is a burgeoning industry in the U.S. and needs to be regulated in the same way as human food.

  8. I need to have good quality cat food for my boys as they are important to me and so is what I feed them shirley sumner xxx
