I read a MediaPost article today about consumer package goods (CPG) company recalls which mentioned the US Food Safety website dedicated to food safety and recalls for human foods in the US. The Pet Connection website was the leader in chronicling the 2007 melamine-related pet food recall, but I don’t think there are any consumer facing sites doing what the US Food Safety site is doing on the pet side. If I was more of a “pet foodie” I think I’d be investigating that space.
UPDATE: I’ve since learned about Susan Thixton’s The Truth About Pet Food site which examines pet food safety. Susan takes a more activist perspective than US Food Safety, but she does cover pet food recalls, which often parallel recalls of similar ingredients in human foods. Susan offers a newsletter and uses Twitter to announce news items.
