Humane Society of the United States sets up Pet Food Safety Information Line
The Humane Society of the United States has just set up a regularly updated pet food safety information line with the most up-to-the-minute pet food recall information, including a list of all companies involved in the recall and ways to determine if your pet’s food was affected.
By calling 1-800-Humane-1 (1-800-486-2631), you’ll hear a short personal message from HSUS President and CEO Wayne Pacelle, and can then choose from among these three areas:
** Updated recall information on pet food and treats;
** Tips on what you can do to protect your pets;
** How you can help.
Concerned pet guardians can also visit The HSUS on-line pet food safety center at http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_food_safety_center/
“Pets are cherished members of our family and they deserve high-quality, safe, nutritious food,” said Pacelle.
We should all keep in mind that 60 percent of U.S. households have pets, so this recall affects millions.
The HSUS also supports efforts by several members of Congress to find out exactly what happened and how it can be prevented in the future. We need to get going on this because I don’t think this problem is going to be resolved for a very … long … time. I think we’re only looking at the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
