Jerky jerky just TOSS IT OUT!
This is a quick post and mostly meant for dog and cat owners, who I know are abundant among visitors. This post concerns chicken jerky treats made in China.I know with all the news focused on Mali and weapons and debt ceilings, some of us may have missed this recent news. There have been voluntary recalls of these products and the FDA has updated statistics on reports of these Made in China products. Bottom line, if you have dogs or cats and any of these treats in your pantry, toss them out or return them. And I'd go as far as saying if you have any treats or pet food made in China, toss that too. It's just not worth the worry considering the number of problems and recalls involving Chinese produced edibles for our pets (and selves). There are many good products produced and sourced in the USA. Read your labels carefully. If you want to keep up with pet food recalls there are two places I often check. The Pet Food List on Facebook and Lucy Girl blog. Both of these sites you can also get to using the Pet Food List link that has been on the right hand side of my blog forever. Go forth, give those dogs and cats a pet from me and a safe healthy treat! :)
Parting shot: TREAT?! Did you just type TREAT? I'm sure I heard TREAT being typed....
