Pet food/treat consumers deserve a lot better from FDA.
Let me see if I understand, you contend that the FDA , a US governmental agency, is obligated to protect Canadian residents and their pets? What has the HPFB Canadian agency done for Canadian residents recently?
we deserve to know the truth about Chinese imported jerky treats".
Here is the truth, Don't feed your pet anything from China or something that you cannot determine the origin. It is called self-responsibility.
Yes, they are a disgrace. And not just with pet food. They pander to the highest bidder. Talk to someone with HIV or anyone with a life threatening disease. They only approve drugs when their pockets are being lined. They deserve to be exposed.
I have heard this accusation before about various governmental agencies and from time to time, some individuals are prosecuted for corruption, but to paint the FDA with such a broad brush is not fair to the employees of that agency or their primary mission.
With regards to the FDA priorities, and their limited budget, I would rather have them protect human consumers first and foremost rather than pets. However, if we want to raise our taxes to increase the FDA budget, then sure, let's include pets too. Maybe Canadian residents would like to be taxed to supplement the FDA budget to include Canadian pets.
There are a plethora of candidates running for President right now from various political parties. You have an opportunity to analyze their positions on budgeting (or not) for education, consumer protection, military, family planning, equal rights, etc. You decide, you choose. I am voting for Ricky Ricardo for President. His motto is, "A full bowl at every meal!"
