Report: CDC Data Concerning "Deaths" Associated With Humans Handling Raw Pet Diets

There are many claims by public health agencies concerning raw pet food diets, CDC being one of those agencies. As an effort to understand the actual truth and data behind many of the claims being made, we at Pet Schooled have been conducting ongoing research through the federal freedom of information act request law. This law allows citizens the ability to access and see government agency records. 

Requests were made to CDC for "all reports made to cdc...pertaining to humans dying from handling any commercially available raw food diets for dogs or cats."

The years for these requests spanned 2009 through 2020. 

CDC confirmed they had no reports, data, or records stating time and time again "A search of our records failed to reveal any documents pertaining to your request" for each year and each request made for these reports of deaths

No human deaths have been reported to CDC in years 2009 through 2020, for humans handling raw pet food diets. 

Many articles published by veterinarians, corporations, and other organizations often cite "CDC" reports of human deaths related to salmonella as a "recommendation" against feeding raw pet diets. "Human handling" is often the main reason for this recommendation against feeding raw pet diets. 

This research endeavor by Pet Schooled confirms no such deaths have occurred, and then been reported to CDC, regarding "deaths" of humans handling commercial raw pet food diets.

FDA Refuses To Speak Via Phone To Veterinarians & Consumers Regarding Ongoing Regulatory Issues With Aflatoxin

Today, FDA confirmed they would not be granting phone call requests in relation to longstanding and ongoing regulatory issues with aflatoxin in dry pet foods, mainly dry pet foods produced with the ingredient corn.  For years, Dr. Steven Solomon and other federal employees of FDA-CVM (Center for Veterinary Medicine) have continuously refused to speak to consumers, consumer groups, and members of the educational field regarding the myriad of issues surrounding various regulatory actions by FDA-CVM. Why wouldn't the FDA-CVM want to have open, honest, and continuous dialogue with the regulated consumers, or with the veterinary field?  For years, FDA-CVM has been regulating the pet food industry by what they call their "opinion", instead of a properly passed rule. It has also been discovered that employees of FDA-CVM held secret meetings with the major grain and dry pet food lobbying group AFIA, where FDA-CVM actually worked with AFIA to stifle regulations that would have bro

Conversation With FDA's Eric Nelson, On FDA Regulating By "Opinion"

I have been wishing to speak to Eric Nelson of FDA for quite some time. Over the years, I have asked public state employees why they are regulating based on their opinion. One consistent name has come up time and time again as I have been looking into this legal issue. I'll quote one specific state department of agriculture employee here. "We just follow what FDA tells us to do at the meetings." The "meetings" beings referenced here are private AAFCO meetings, where FDA engages in official rule making functions in a private setting, right next to representatives of Hills, Purina, and other major companies that have long dominated the pet food market. I asked this state employee, "who at the FDA is giving you instructions, which you then follow without question?" After a bit of back and forth, the state employee said, "Eric Nelson."  Over this years, I have also documented how this FDA employee has engaged in attempting to whitewash the entire

John Dillard, AAFCO's "Lawyer", Speaks About Public Employees Copyrighting Regulations

Today (January 4, 2021), I called Mr. John Dillard who acts as a lawyer for "AAFCO", a group of public employees operating as a private corporation. This group of public employees holds meetings twice a year so they can create "official feed definitions" for pet food and animal feed ingredients. Essentially, public rulemaking is being done in "private" at these meetings, and then the public employes ensure their "regulatory work" is copyrighted. FDA has been heavily involved in this private process as well.  When public employees write an "official feed definition", most then "reference" that official feed definition in their state laws. My conversations with various state feed control officials over the past few years has confirmed that once most states adopt "aafco feed definitions" into their state's feed law, those definitions then become law.  Once those definitions become law, citizens are met with a bizarr
