As many of you already know, the FDA Revitalization Act was passed and signed into law
this past September.

The Pet Food Institute (PFI) and the American Pet Products Manufacturer's Assn. (APPMA) still need
to be convinced that it is in there best interests to encourage compliance with this new law by their members.

The new law, among other things, mandates new standards for pet food labeling, production, and ingredients.

The PFI and APPMA seem to be dragging their feet, at best, as advisors to AAFCO, in the implementation of efforts to come up with these new standards.

Consumer efforts seem to have fallen on deaf ears.

Ultimately, the PFI and the APPMA will only listen to one group, namely their own CUSTOMERS, the retailers.

With this in mind, DefendOurPets.org, has organized a drive to get your local retailer to e-mail these two groups asking them to comply with the consumer's demands for pet food safety.

I have provided the info you need at:

www.defendourpets.org/index at a link called "Retailer Safety Drive"

and

www.defendourpets.org/pfi.html

YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED!

Thank,

Mike
