Only animals are mentioned in either bill, no pets/companion animals.

Comparing H.R. 2749 and S. 510
by Helena Bottemiller | Sep 09, 2009

"Unlike the House bill, Durbin's bill does not require that category 1 (high risk) facilities report finished product results or that each facility has a food safety plan in place before introducing food into interstate commerce. It also does not give the FDA authority to quarantine a geographic area, nor does it require a national traceback system, or whistleblower protection for employees who draw attention to violations"

Will H.R. 2749 Kill Small Farms?
by Alex Ferguson | Sep 17, 2009
Amidst the flurry of activity surrounding the proposed food safety bills currently in the House and Senate, one of the most hotly discussed topics remains whether the bills will affect small farms.  Will these bills end the organic farming movement as we know it?  

This author, at least, says no. But it's his opinion.

Largely historical perspective on food safety law, but interesting:
