2007 Melamine Contamination Explained
FDA webinar to cover investigation, harmful effects
A cheerful FDA chemist uses gas chromatography to measure levels of melamine in food samples.

In 2007, thousands of dogs and cats were made ill and even killed by melamine contamination in imported pet food and treats. Questions, anger and grief still linger. On Tuesday, Food and Drug Administration scientist Renate Reimschuessel will detail the FDA’s investigation into the crisis and the contaminant’s harmful effects. During the half-hour limited-audience webinar, Reimschuessel will also respond to listeners’ questions.

 
Details: Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 2 p.m. EST—complete details at the link above. (Note: There are a limited number of spots available but materials from the webinar will be made available on the FDA's website.)
