FDA Basics Webinar: Melamine: The Cause of the Pet Food and Infant Formula Recalls

Did you know that FDA regulates that can of cat food, bag of dog food, or box of dog treats or snacks in your pantry? In March 2007, FDA learned that certain foods were sickening and killing cats and dogs.

Join us on Tuesday, November 30, at 2 p.m. ET when FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine will host a 30-minute webinar on “Melamine: The Cause of the Pet Food and Infant Formula Recalls”. Featured speaker Renate Reimschuessel, Research Biologist from the Division of Animal Research, Center for Veterinary Medicine, will discuss how FDA investigated and found contaminants that were imported into the United States and used as ingredients in pet food. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

hmmmm I am a pet lover and rescuer, but am wondering why this isn't a bigger deal that it is in infant formula?!

Interesting... My husband used to work for a production company in quality control. It's actually quite amazing how little regulations some companies follow. He could tell some stories about which ones seem to care more than others. Thanks for advertising the webinar!
