Brindisi Announces Plan To Combat Tainted Pet Food

 

Jim Rondenelli, WIBX

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is laying out a new action plan to combat the growing trend of pets sickened by food and treats from China.

Brindisi wants the Food and Drug Administration to require manufacturers of pet foods to list the country of origin for each ingredient they use.

The Assemblyman is joining the Stevens-Swann Humane Society in unveiling a new “Buy Local” campaign.

Stevens-Swann is teaming up with ADK Puppy Truffles and Jake’s Bake’s, two local treat producers who will now feature their products at the shelter.

Brindisi says since 2007, the FDA has linked many of the sicknesses of over 3,600 dogs and cats to pet treat manufacturers in China.

He says nearly 600 of the animals died.
