Article - China Stiff Arms the FDA on Jerky Pet Treat Testing
« on: August 24, 2012, 11:01:11 AM »
What a shocker . . . (sarcasm).

It's sad people have to watch their pets get sick and/or die to realize how messed up this industry is, and how useless the "watchers" are.  If there's a bright side to the tragedy, it's that more and more people are becoming aware and learning on their own.  And hopefully they are making better choices.  In the case of the woman in the article, she's fighting back.

Elizabeth Mawaka, 57, a Hartford, Conn., woman who says her two Boston terriers, Max and Toby, died after eating tainted treats, called on Nestle Purina to demand that samples be released to the FDA.
“It really comes down to the company,” said Mawaka, who is suing jerky treat makers and retailers. “We can talk all we want about China, but it’s really the company.”
