Write Your Congressperson About Contaminated Food

I know that many people are very upset, angry and frustrated over the many pet food recalls in the last month, and about how the FDA knows that at least two distributors (Wilbur Ellis is one) imported rice protien from China which is probably contaminated, but won't release the name of the second distributor, or the names of any of the pet food brands that use rice protien from either distributor.

The FDA is also going to begin testing human food (chicken and pork) due to concerns that contaminated feed may have been fed to hogs and chickens.

  2. My human wrote a very stern letter to her representative. It is time they stand up for US, and not these manufacturers!
