the 2007 pet food crisis: was it preventable?  -  pet manufacturing process
A pet food manufacturer allows a deadly substance known as melamine to enter their products, and its wet pet food is sold under dozens of familiar brands.
The error was not discovered until more than 60 million potentially contaminated units were in the store and reported sudden-onset kidney failure between cats and dogs.
The accompanying pet food recall has affected pet owners across the country.
If you are a pet owner, you may have heard of it.
In February and the news agency reported a shocking kidney failure epidemic that suddenly happened between cats and dogs.
Although the figure has not yet been officially released, some sources report that thousands of cats have died in the country and thousands of pets are seriously ill.
Shortly after the outbreak began, the culprit was identified.
A pet food manufacturer allows a deadly substance known as melamine to enter their products, and its wet pet food is sold under dozens of familiar brands.
The error was not discovered until more than 60 million potential contaminated units had been put on the shelves.
The accompanying pet food recall has attracted the attention of pet owners nationwide. Media-
The list of affected products provided seems to be growing every hour.
Soon, there was a huge gap on the shelves of the supermarket pet food channel.
There is little comfort in the symptoms of melamine poisoning.

Allowing outbreaks like this year is the fastest way to go out of business.
Nevertheless, as this case shows, there is a lack of supervision by the government and it is very easy for our pets to have accidents and mistakes.
Most pet food manufacturers obtain raw materials from a variety of sources.

The pollutants in these products come from China.
So, with materials from all over the world, what can we do to make sure that pet food is not contaminated in the future?
Obviously, there is nothing we can do to ensure that the products made in China are not contaminated, but as far as we are concerned, we can do a lot of things.
The key is not to prevent contamination where it is impossible to prevent it, but to detect contamination before it reaches our pet's food bowl.
Specifically, we can carry out melamine testing before a batch of food is put on the shelves.
Many companies have already tested melamine in all aspects of the pet food production process.
Not only can the finished product be tested, but also the ingredients of the product can be tested, which often come from all over the world.
For example, if you are an importer of pet food materials, investing in melamine testing services can save your company from this embarrassment and stigma.
In other words, while there is no official pet food FDA, it is in the best interest of pets, pet owners and pet food manufacturers to make the whole process safe and careful
Watch as much as possible.
Therefore, from a commercial point of view, melamine testing is both smart and ethical.
It not only keeps the pet food manufacturer in business, but also protects our beloved pets from harm.
