The US pet food industry is a hot topic this year with concerns about pet food adulteration, food safety and the potential for a new wave of food poisoning cases.
Pet food companies have been struggling to compete with grocery stores who are increasingly relying on a combination of high quality ingredients and low prices.
Grocery chains, on the other hand, have seen an uptick in food poisoning incidents in recent years and have increasingly used the threat of food contamination to drive up prices.
The rise in food-borne illnesses linked to pet food has increased dramatically since 2009.
In October of that year, more than 1,200 people in the US died from food-related illnesses.
The CDC reported that nearly 20,000 people were hospitalized due to food-induced illness in 2016, a 33% increase from the year prior.
As food safety becomes an increasingly important concern, pet food companies are finding themselves in a tricky spot.
Grooming companies are trying to compete on price and quality, while pet food makers are trying be more transparent about their product.
Pet foods companies are facing pressure from pet food consumers, who are worried about the quality of their food and the long-term health of their pets.
The pet food crisis has created a lot of confusion and a lot more questions than answers.
For some pet owners, the answers are not as simple as they once thought.
Here are some pet food facts you might not know about pet foods.
Most pet food contains some form of gluten or wheat, and a number of pet food brands contain gluten, according to PetSmart.
Pet food makers can include both wheat and gluten in their pet food formulations, which is important because these ingredients can cause severe health issues for some pets.
According to the American Pet Products Association, about 20% of pet foods contain gluten.
Some pet food manufacturers, such as PetSmart, say they can provide all ingredients that their customers require, but that some of the ingredients may be labeled gluten-free, including some gluten-containing items.
A small number of food-labeled ingredients contain corn syrup, which can cause an allergic reaction for some pet foods that are made with corn.
Other ingredients that can cause allergic reactions include onion powder, onion powder and salt, according the US Food and Drug Administration.
Some pet food products may contain gluten-based ingredients.
The FDA has not issued a list of the allergens and their concentrations, but some pet products contain high levels of the same ingredients, such a rice-based product or one made with soy.
Pet Food Industry Association of AmericaPresident Mike Smith says pet food is a food that is meant to be enjoyed by pets, and it should be made with the highest quality ingredients that they can afford.
Smith said the pet food business has had a tough time keeping up with the growing demand for pet food.
“We have a very high demand for the products that we make, and pet food isn’t the only food we have to sell,” he said.
“The number of people who are sick with pet food-associated illnesses is rapidly increasing.”
Pet food manufacturers are increasingly making changes to improve the quality and safety of their products, and some companies are looking to the pet industry to help them do that.
PetFoodWorld, a trade association that represents pet food and pet care industries, has created the Pet Food Safety and Education Center to better educate pet owners about pet safety and food safety.
It’s also working to educate pet food retailers on the safety of pet products, as well as pet food labeling and safety requirements.
The organization’s website says the center will provide a list and a list a list with pet foods from petfood manufacturers, and help pet food stores and pet foods companies better understand the safety requirements for their pet products.
