Harmful substance found in pet food
(04-15 18:20)

The Consumer Council said on Tuesday that it has detected cancer-causing substance in some samples of pet food.
It said the presence of "aflatoxin B1" was found in seven out of 39 dry dog and cat foods it tested.
While the amounts were within European Union's safety limits, the Council said pet owners may want to avoid the foods. --RTHK
