Freakin' out over food

I first learned of the pet food recall 3 weeks ago and now, it seems the panic is setting in among my close friends and fellow dog lovers.

Just recently, Del Monte pulled many of its pet snacks off the shelves. There is so much to know and the stories are coming fast and furious.

Here's where I go to keep abreast of what's going on with the pet food recall.

1. Newsday -- They have a neat package of local and national news, videos, and a poll dedicated to the tainted food frenzy. It's being updated frequently.

2. Poop City -- A great pet blog that is closely watching every morsel of good and bad news in the pet food recall.

3. New York Tails -- This local publication is great resource for those who want to actually do something about the problem of poor quality pet food. NYT is encouraging pet owners to send photos and letters to make sure the FDA takes this seriously.

With all these resources, there's no reason to freak out over food. Please don't panic, just do your best to stay informed of the situation and do what you can to monitor your pet's health.

My heart goes out to those families who have lost a pet due to the harmful ingredients in these foods.
