FDA proposes changes to make pet food safer
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - After several incidents of pets dying from dog treats the Food and Drug Administration is proposing new rules to make pet food safer.
Right now the FDA is investigating the deaths of nearly 600 dogs, believe to be linked to jerky treats imported from China.
But these new rules actually stem from a food safety law passed by Congress about three years ago.
They focus on preventing food contamination before it begins.
The rules would require pet food sellers to follow certain sanitation practices and have detailed food safety plans.
