Does anyone else think the FDA is being unreasonable about pet treats?
The FDA recently admitted that it has traced the deaths of hundreds of pets and illness of thousands more, to chicken jerky treats sold under a variety of brands, but all sourced in China. The FDA states that they haven't pulled the treats because, though the deaths are documented, the exact ingredient driving them, has not. An FDA spokesman recently stated that the best course of action is simply to eliminate treats from your pet's diet. Does anyone else think that is overly simplistic, unrealistic advice?
Since they can't pinpoint the contaminant or the exact source, I'm not sure what they should do other than warn the public. Do you believe they should ban all dog treats? Some manufacturers have voluntarily pulled their products off the shelf as a precaution. In the meantime, I'm thinking about baking some of my own pet treats. There are quite a few good recipes out here.
I was just taken aback that a rep of the US government suggested avoiding a whole type of product because of an issue with one - so we have a reaction to one type of human drug, stop taking them all? That seems like throwing out the baby with the bath water to me.

Does anyone else dislike the new hub layout?I much prefer the old layout to the new one that is being unveiled. Does anyone else feel the same way and wish HP would keep the layout the way it is? I think it looks just fine. The new one just seems so overwhelming and, well, just weird to me.

Does anyone else want to see Dwayne Johnson play Samson?I think it would be so great to have my favorite Bible story brought to life by The Rock!!!! It's the one Sunday school story filled with so much action. It of course was toned down but Samson was a Barbarian, who eventually did God's will.

Does anyone else have random people posting weird comments on their hubsthat seem to be personal messages to other people that have nothing to do with your hub content? I keep having to deny and delete these!
