PET-FOOD LABELS



Published: Sun, November 3, 2013 @ 12:00 a.m.

PET-FOOD LABELS

Paying attention

Pet-food labeling is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Many states have also adopted labeling standards published by the Association of American Feed Control Officials. Consumers should pay close attention to labels when buying food for their dogs and cats:

Products labeled as “premium,” “super premium” or “holistic” are not required to contain different or higher-quality ingredients. They are marketing terms.

Products labeled “natural” by and large may not contain artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

Products labeled “organic” must follow strict U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for human organic food.
