It may seem like we're not asking much - we're not! By requesting
only minor changes to pet food labels, we are less likely to be
refused these changes. We're asking for information imperative
for proper labeling, yet information it's not impossible or even
particularly difficult to provide us. We have documentation, from
Pet Food Institute and FDA staff themselves, that the information
is needed by pet owners. By presenting a united front in our requests,
we're more likely to be heard.
To be heard, however, we need HUNDREDS
of individuals to get involved!
PLEASE take a few minutes to submit comments!
The meeting will be held May 13, 2008, time is of the essence!
