Pet Food Politics: The Chihuahua in the Coal Mine

Pet Food Politics: The Chihuahua in the Coal Mine / by Marion Nestle

SF 414 .N47 2008

“Marion Nestle tells the gripping story of how, in early 2007, a few telephone calls about sick cats set off what was then the largest recall of consumer products in U.S. history and caused an international crisis over the safety of imported goods ranging from food to pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, tires, and toys. Nestle follows the trail of tainted pet food ingredients back to their source in China and along the supply chain to their introduction into feed for pigs, chickens, and fish in the United States, Canada, and other countries throughout the world…It is essential reading for people who care about pets as well as anyone interested in food, food policy, and our nation’s health in an increasingly globalized world.”–book jacket.
