How to keep pets safe from the chemicals used in pet food
A recent survey conducted by the Natural Resources Canada found that nearly one-third of Canadian pet owners are considering switching to pet food made with genetically engineered ingredients.
The survey also found that more than half of Canadians believe that food that has been genetically engineered should be labelled as such.
The Natural Resources Agency says the numbers reflect a growing public concern that the food industry is marketing food that contains genetically engineered products to pets as safe.
It also says the use of genetically engineered crops in pet foods is not without risk.
The report says the government needs to take action to protect pets and the environment.
In addition to its recommendations, the report recommends that the government create a new regulator to oversee the safety of genetically-engineered products.
