FDA Proposing New Rules For Pet Food

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) --- The FDA, Food And Drug Administration, are proposing new rules for pet food.

Amid reports that more than 36-hundred dogs and 10 cats have gotten sick after eating jerky pet treats over the past six years.

The FDA says 580 of those pets have died, and the goal is to protect animal foods from bacteria, chemicals and other contaminants.

No particular brand has been named by the agency, but most of the treats implicated were made in china.

The rules still need final approval.
