The cable TV show "Business Day with Terry Bradshaw" featured a segment on petfood safety in the June 18 episode. The segment, sponsored by Extru-Tech Inc., discusses reasons why petfood safety is so important and covers measures being taken to ensure food safety, including the Food Safety and Modernization Act recently implemented by the US Food and Drug Administration.
Participants in the segment include Scott Krebs, executive VP and COO at Extru-Tech; Greg Watt, chief executive of Watt Publishing Co., which publishes Petfood Industry magazine; and James Marsden, PhD, a food safety expert from Kansas State University.
In addition to addressing why he feels petfood safety is so important as a pet owner, Krebs discusses the extrusion process being used by petfood manufacturers for safe food production. Watt addresses the size of the petfood industry and its direct role in affecting the need for further petfood safety regulations. Marsden covers the steps producers are taking to ensure petfood is manufactured and distributed in a safe manner.
The "Business Day" show featuring the petfood safety segment first aired on Saturday, June 18, at 4 p.m. EST on the Fox Business Network. Watch the video here.
