FDA Provides Update on Investigation into Potential Connection Between Certain Diets and Cases of Canine Heart Disease

 

 

@SGottliebFDA

  • ·        #FDA has been working closely with our investigative partners to understand a potential link between diet And dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dog breeds not normally affected by the disease. This is a complex and ongoing investigation, and we will update as we learn more.
  • ·        We are analyzing diets, testing affected animals and studying nutritional factors potentially connected to DCM. We are not recommending a diet change at this time. Pet owners should work with their vets on an appropriate diet for their dog: https://go.usa.gov/xEErc

 

@FDAfood

  • ·        UPDATE: FDA reinstates Working Cow facility registration following proposed business changes along w/ FDA site inspection & verification. The company will NOT resume ice cream manufacturing, but WILL store and distribute product from other manufacturers https://go.usa.gov/xEEZU

  • ·        Virtual restaurants on the rise. The food system is changing in ways we never imagined. Let's make sure we keep food safety front & central to the innovations. https://www.ajc.com/
  • ·        Anonymity vs Transparency. Anonymity in the food system disinhibits undesired behaviors. Transparency, via digitally-enabled traceability, will lead to greater accountability & self-governance of responsible, desired behaviors. #traceability #blockchain https://www.foodnavigator.com/
