In the wake of a recent string of illnesses connected to tainted jerky treats for pets, the FDA is proposing new rules for companies that make dog and cat food.

Officials want companies to use the same methods when making animal food that keep human food safe. The goal is to minimize exposure with contaminants.

The proposed changes come amid reports of over 3,600 dogs becoming ill after eating jerky treats in the past six years.

HOLTS SUMMIT, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri animal shelter is working to find room for more than 40 cats that lived at a home.

Holts Summit police and animal rescue volunteers began removing the animals from the home Monday morning and will continue to take more animals to the shelter Tuesday.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports the department began investigating the home after complaints from neighbors last year.

Officer Marc Haycook said the department tried to work with the homeowners to reduce the number of animals in the house but nothing was accomplished.

The local shelter will house the cats until they are ready for adoption.

The homeowners are scheduled to appear in Holts Summit Municipal Court Wednesday.
