Responding to the massive recall of cat and dog food, the Senate voted Wednesday in favor of stricter production and labeling standards, so people have more information about what they are feeding their pets. The 94 to 0 vote was on an amendment by Sen. Dick Durbin to broaden the legislation related to the FDA. The amendment also calls for a pet version of the system that now tracks food contamination and outbreaks of illness and death in humans.
I don't even have pets (well, I do if you count fish), and it is about time something got done. What worries me now is how much of this has gotten into the human food supply.
