LAS VEGAS — ChemNutra Inc. is calling for a national summit on pet food ingredients designed for importers, analysis laboratories and manufacturers as a way to begin drafting standards and specifications for pet food ingredients internationally.

ChemNutra is volunteering to coordinate a one-day conference currently scheduled for July 14 in Las Vegas. The company imported pet food ingredients from China that were tainted with melamine.

"I am hopeful that those who import and use imported pet food ingredients will set aside any competitive difference we may have to unite for what I know is a common purpose — the safety of pets," said Steve Miller, chief executive officer. "We also invite the participation of experts in product safety and analysis."

Mr. Miller also said the purpose of the meeting will be to establish a process for drafting new testing and importing standards for pet foods and to evaluate the industry’s interest and desire in establishing a new trade association focused on pet food ingredient safety.
