The US Food and Drug Administration renewed an agreement with the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China to further cooperation between the US and China on food and animal feed safety. Originally signed in November 2008, the US and China have extended the agreement for five more years.
The agreement includes:
The question is whether they provide additional benefit to the dog or cat
What is this quiet, unassuming ingredient, and should it be there?
It's the finishing touch that can meet both owner and pet needs.
The mid-year meeting addressed several regulatory matters affecting petfoods
Public meetings invited comments and provided updates
It gives more direct control to CVM in establishing and maintaining ingredient definitions
The new US food safety legislation will also affect regulation of petfood
Safe, nutritious, tasty petfood requires careful handling and processing of raw meat ingredients
Processors should carefully develop, validate and implement an effective kill step to support production of pathogen-free petfoods
