Ban Arsenic in Animal Feed!

CFS Action Alert – Tell FDA to Ban Arsenic in Animal Feed
Last December, the Center for Food Safety and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, filed a petition with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) calling for the immediate withdrawal of approvals for arsenic-containing compounds used in animal feed. The petition was supported by a coalition of food and farm groups around the country. (Arsenic-containing compounds are most widely used in chicken production, and most chickens receive arsenic-laced feed.) A petition and background info can be found on the Center for Food Safety’s website, The True Food Network. Public comment period is open through June 15th
