Performance Pet Products announced that its canned petfood facility was approved by the US Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) for shipments to the European Union (EU).
In compliance with APHIS regulations, every ingredient used in these products must be sourced from EU-certified suppliers. FDA is currently in the process of establishing more rigorous guidelines for petfood processing plant compliance and inspections of petfood facilities.
