Did you know that FDA regulates that can of cat food, bag of dog food, or box of dog treats or snacks in your pantry? Do you know how FDA uncovered and confirmed the presence of contaminants in the 2007 pet food recalls?
As part of FDA Basics, FDA is hosting a webinar where you can learn more. The featured speaker, Renate Reimschuessel, Research Biologist from the Division of Animal Research, Center for Veterinary Medicine, will discuss how FDA investigated and found contaminants that were imported into the United States and used as ingredients in pet food. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
