POISONED PET FOOD:
WILL THE US FOOD SAFETY BILLS DIE A LEGISLATIVE DEATH ?:
Molly wants to call attention to a recent comment posted on the Itchmo Blog about the Durbin (senate) and DeLauro (house) bills that purport to address the deficiencies in US food safety that the pet food crisis has exposed. Each house of the US Congress has referred their separate bills to the other for consideration. Neither house has taken up the other's bill for consideration, even though both passed by unanimous consent. There they have sat for weeks without any action. They appear on no calenders for debate. Is this a sneaky legislative way to kill bills while still giving an illusion of action ? Go to the comment on the Itchmo Blog, http://itchmoforums.com/index.php?topic=589.msg5301 to read more and to see suggestions as to what you can do if you are an American (us Canucks will wait and see).

Alex, the cat who owns me, has been prescribed a new diet by his vet. I suppose I should check that the new food is safe?

Hi Nick,
Molly uses the list maintained by the American Veterinary Medical Association at http://www.avma.org as her master source. This list is sometimes out of date when recalls occur on the weekend, but it is updated through the week.
