The Food and Drug Administration said Friday it is issuing a proposed rule aimed at improving the safety of food manufactured for farm animals and pets.
The rule would require companies that make animal feed and pet food sold in the United States to identify potential hazards and put in place procedures to prevent and correct them.
Long in the making, the rule comes days after the agency turned to pet owners for help in an ongoing investigation into jerky products, most made in China, that have killed nearly 600 dogs and cats and sickened thousands of others in the U.S. since 2007.
The proposal is one of seven key pillars of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act, an initiative designed to improve human and animal food safety and reduce food-borne illnesses by giving the FDA greater power to intervene before an outbreak occurs.

Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul threatened on Friday to put a ‘hold’ on the nomination of Janet Yellen to be chair of the Federal Reserve unless he gets a vote on a bill he has sponsored to put the central bank under more scrutiny.
"As part of Senate consideration of the Janet Yellen nomination to be chair of the Federal Reserve, I will request a vote on my bipartisan Federal Reserve Transparency Act," Paul said in a statement. "The American people deserve transparency from the Federal Reserve and the federal government as a whole."
An aide to Paul said no final decision had been made on whether to place a hold on the nomination, but if Paul did move forward, it would force Yellen’s supporters to round up 60 votes in the 100-seat Senate to advance the nomination.
