While Palm Bay, FL is seeking to be the first city in the US to ban Chinese products, a Tampa resident has created a Petsumer Report to notify pet owners of pet foods and treats that contain ingredients from China.
Petsumer Report is a pet food and pet treat publication that provides ratings of dog food, cat food, and dog and cat treats and provides subscribers with country of origin of ingredients. Susan Thixton, a pet food expert, developed the pet food review publication from the requests of pet owners nationwide.
Thixton said, â€œIf a pet food contains ingredients purchased in China â€“ itâ€™s feed at your own risk. At the very least, pet owners deserve to know about it. Petsumer Report not only gives pet owners information about where pet food ingredients come from, but alerts them to other potentially dangerous ingredients such as by-products and chemical preservatives.â€
Petsumer Report currently has ratings and ingredient information on over 300 pet foods and treats.
