Veterinarian pushes for warning on products containing xylitol
Portland, Ore., veterinarian Jason Nicholas is on a campaign to raise awareness that xylitol, a common food sweetener, is toxic to dogs. Nicholas has created two online petitions seeking manufacturer and FDA help in drawing attention to the danger, possibly including new labeling requirements for xylitol-sweetened foods. Some peanut butters and yogurts contain xylitol, as do other foods sometimes given to dogs as treats.FoodSafetyNews.com
