Exclamation Jerky Treat Warning Update

FDA continues testing of jerky treats due to consumer complaints. Not sure why these new areas of testing have not been done already though. It seems odd to me.
Unbelievable FDA

Jerky treat feeding instructions- Load of crap to me.
Feeding Directions of Jerky Treats
(I love the 1 person's comment about the Pet store staff member that said only dogs feed only the jerky treats have died Zoey was never feed more than 1/ day and she was killed by these treats )

The questions that remain unanswered continue.
The FDA Responds

The crusade to prevent others pets from being killed by these treats continues.

Zoey maybe gone but very forgotten.

I have gotten Blue Wilderness (with the picture of the wolf on the bag) chicken and turkey Jerky. Are these treats included in the recall? I would have thought they were made in America. I looked on the back of the bag and did not see "Made in China"

Unfortunately, there have been no actual recalls of the China made Jerky treats

I don't know about the Blue Wilderness- I due know Blue gets some ingredients from New Zealand (lamb mostly) and "trusted foreign suppliers" for vitamins and minerals- No idea who the trusted suppliers are

I just know for me I will not buy dog treats unless absolutely neccessary- I dehydrate turkey, chicken, beef, duck, buffalo, etc as well as fruit and veggies for mine now as treats. They seem to love it and I know exactly when the treats are made, what ingredients are in them, how they have been stored, etc. Once a week I run the dehydrator for meat and once for fruit and veggies.

If I could I would home-cook but it would require too much time and storage needs for me.

Sorry to not be much help

If I see a label that says "made in China", I do not buy the product. Same goes for any dog food product produced outside the USA. I used to buy pressed rawhide until the package I was buying said "irradiated for safety.". I buy Milo's Kitchen treats for training, but one must be careful as some are "made in China". I am "all set."

Use care with Milo's kitchen since their jerky treats have also been connected with pet illness and deaths.

Ingredients can be bought from overseas and assembled here thus "Made in the USA"

Example- Nature's Variety Rabbit Formula Dog Food- Made in the US but the Rabbit comes from China
Instinct: Rabbit Meal Formula: Grain-Free Kibble for Dogs | Nature's Variety
Consumer letter from company about rabbit sourcing http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-fo...iety-dog-food/ May or may not be 100% accurate. http://www.dogforums.com/dog-food-fo...y-vs-totw.html May or may not be 100% accurate.

I of course would call myself before feeding. Hindsight is 20/20.

Purina claims their products are all American made per Rep. I spoke too. And I know for a fact this is not true. Since Purina owns Waggin Train.

I had been using Milo's Kitchen Jerkey treats, because they were made in the US (at least the one's I bought), so I googled it and found this today:
