[LISTEN] Pets at increased risk due to noncompliant pet food sales
The Pet Food Industry Association says has urged pet owners to be wary when purchasing pet food - especially when its origin is unknown.
The association has raised alarms over non-compliant pet food sales.
The association's general manager Dominique Kuhlmann explains how brands are bought in bulk, decanted into smaller packages and sold at a cheaper rate.
She says the problem with this is that consumers are being denied of essential information like the best before date.
When you decide to downgrade and buy a cheaper food that you may have found through Facebook r even often on the side of the road, you are not actually assured that the food is within its best before date and you are not sure how long it has been opened or what elements it has been exposed to.Dominique Kuhlmann, General manager - Pet Food Industry Association
It is important that the pet owner is at least informed so that they can make an informed decision.Dominique Kuhlmann, General manager - Pet Food Industry Association
I want pet owners to be aware so that they can make the right decisions having all the information at hand.Dominique Kuhlmann, General manager - Pet Food Industry Association
