PETNet is a secure reporting/notification system that was designed by the Partnership for Food Protection and is maintained by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). PETNet is accessible by state and federal government officials with regulatory authority and responsibility over pet food. PETNet is for government use only and is not open to the public.
The PETNet system facilitates sharing of information about food-borne illness outbreaks in companion animals between Federal and State agencies. The information can be used by State and Federal regulators to determine how best to use investigative and laboratory resources to prevent or quickly limit the adverse events associated with adulterated pet food.
