Watch: pet food safety featured on business show

The cable TV show "Business Day with Terry Bradshaw" featured a segment on petfood safety in the June 18 episode. The segment, sponsored by Extru-Tech Inc., discusses reasons why petfood safety is so important and covers measures being taken to ensure food safety, including the Food Safety and Modernization Act recently implemented by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Participants in the segment include Scott Krebs, executive VP and COO at Extru-Tech; Greg Watt, chief executive of Watt Publishing Co., which publishes Petfood Industry magazine; and James Marsden, PhD, a food safety expert from Kansas State University.

The segment, part of the show's Doing Business in a Global Economy series, shines a spotlight not only on petfood safety -- which, in the wake of ongoing recalls and the new FSMA law, has become a keen interest for petfood manufacturers, suppliers and pet owners alike -- but also on the overall petfood industry.

Watch our industry's turn in the spotlight here.
