Pet Food Recall & Food Safety — sites & sources

May 10, 2007

This is by no means a comprehensive list. Some of the links here have far more information than you could ever want to digest. Yes, I’m biased. If you have a suggestion for another source with a different perspective that is articulate and thoughtfully presented, please add a comment! And let me know if any of the links are broken. It’s a mad rush sometimes to keep this list up to date, which means that YT doesn’t always type the URLs accurately. If that doesn’t make you mad, the whole regulatory snafu should. See my other posts past present and future.

In no particular order:

Current FDA info on the Pet Food Recall

  1. Until we stop over processing the food chain we will have the need for lists like this – thanks for taking the time to put it together though – most useful.
