As the nation continues to wrestle with how to regulate the fur industry, new regulations are being introduced to the food industry.
The Federal Trade Commission is working on rules that would regulate the use of fur products in animal feed, but the fur producers’ groups say that rules don’t go far enough.
“We don’t want to be in a position where we’re being told that if you’re making dog food, you’re going to make sure that you’re using only purebred animals,” said Mike Fennell, president of the American Fur Council.
Fennell is a co-founder of the Humane Society of the United States.
He and other animal rights activists are pushing for stricter rules to protect the animals and make sure consumers are getting the best products possible.
“If you’re putting purebred dogs and cats in the food, and you’re saying that it’s going to be safe to consume, that’s a problem,” he said.
“It doesn’t mean that the food is safe.”
There are some new restrictions on how much fur can be used in animal feeds, but they are very narrow and would only apply to dog food products made for dogs.
The rules were proposed in January and are currently being debated by the commission.
Under the proposed rules, dog food that contains more than 50 percent purebred dog fur could not be sold in the United Nations or any other international trade fairs, and must be labeled as such.
That’s the same rule that bans using fur as a coloring agent in cosmetics and food.
The fur is also banned in pet food.
While there have been concerns raised about how much animal fur can actually be used, there have also been plenty of products that have been labeled as containing no more than 10 percent dog fur.
