If you're anything like me, every time you feed your dog commercial dog food, you think about the many pet food recalls that have taken place this past decade. It can be overwhelming at times to try to keep up with the numerous recalls. Not only do you have to figure out where to go to locate the information, but you have to determine whether the information you have obtained is accurate.
Well, I have good news! The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have joined forces to launch a new food-safety consumer website (http://www.foodsafety.gov/) that, fortunately, includes pet food recall information. The website is updated with the latest announcements from the federal government, as well as tips on how to handle food safely, and news from key agencies. Visitors to the website can sign up to receive e-mail and/or RSS alerts on recalled and potentially unsafe food.
