Killer food & the politics of pets
I found this great article in Maclean's about the pet food recalls. It discusses how it is the cumulative effect of market practices and the deregulation of food production in Canada and the U.S. led to this particular crisis. There's some interesting stuff about the growth of Menu Foods as a conglomerate and how it came to produce most of the wet food in North America. And they suggest one solution is to guarantee a financial loss when the health and safety of pets is compromised by consider animals, legally, to be more than just property. Yes, please.
