Dog food safety and product liability concerns

Every year, Americans spend millions of dollars on pet care and accessory products. Many Georgia residents provide their beloved four-legged friends with top-quality pet foods and treats in an effort to promote the health and well-being of their animals. Unfortunately, however, the number of high-profile product recalls and lawsuits that have occurred in recent years illustrates that pets are often subjected to painful and preventable injuries. That is why it is important for pet owners and pet food consumers to be aware of possible product liability risks and watchdog efforts.

In today’s world of product safety testing and FDA standards, we expect the things we buy--from the products we use to the food we eat--to be safe, without the risk of causing injury or sickness. Unfortunately, products do come on the market sometimes that are harmful, and result in consumer injury or death. And food in restaurants as well as storebought is sometimes tainted with bacteria or other substances that cause illness.

Most of the time people don't think about the potential harm their environment can do to their health and longevity, at least in their own neighborhoods. But sometimes elements present in the ground, water system or even the air can lead to such health conditions as asthma, seizures, chronic pain and cancer. Often, these problems aren't caused by naturally occurring conditions, but from byproducts and other waste from nearby plants and businesses.
