WASHINGTON, May 25, 2007 -- The Food Safety and Inspection Service today announced the availability of a Federal Register document that details the decision-making process that FSIS followed related to pet food scraps fed to swine and poultry that contained melamine and melamine-related compounds. This Federal Register document provides the public an opportunity to comment on those FSIS decisions. FSIS' public health decisions were made based on the best available scientific data and information. The document is available on public display today at the Office of the Federal Register, and an advance copy is available at the following link:

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/OPPDE/rdad/FRPubs/2007-0018.pdf .

The document will publish in the May 30, 2007 edition of the Federal Register.

In the same issue of the Federal Register, the Food and Drug Administration is issuing a notice of availability of an interim safety/risk assessment related to melamine. The notice is available at:

http://www.fda.gov/OHRMS/DOCKETS/98fr/07n-0208-nad0001.pdf .

Based on currently available data and information, this safety/risk assessment indicates that the consumption of pork, poultry, eggs, and domestic fish products produced when animal feed was contaminated with melamine and melamine-related compounds is very unlikely to pose a human health risk. The safety/risk assessment is available at:

http://www.fda.gov/OHRMS/DOCKETS/98fr/07n-0208-ra00001.pdf .

Comments to the Federal Register associated with the FSIS issuance must be received by August 28, 2007. FSIS invites interested persons to submit comments on the findings in this notice. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:

This is a GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT to put the human and pet food manufacturer's of America on alert, that we will not tolerate vague labeling of our foods, any longer.

We want full disclosure of ingredients, source/country-of-origin, place of manufacturing & place of distribution, including a toll-free number.

Oh, by-the-way -- STOP POISONING OUR FOOD!!!
