    I started doing just that about 2yrs ago when recalls from China started cropping up pretty regularly. Just irritates me to no end they seem to continually have these recalls from that country yet continue to bring them in and fill the shelves with those products.

    Read the article. US companies are not required to state the origin of the ingredients.

    I did, so what you are implying is that US companies MAY be using Chinese or some foreign countries ingredients?

    If I can possibly help it I will never eat or feed my family or my dog anything made or grown in China. I spent 12 years in the import business and there is nothing in this world like the mindset of the Chinese businessman. Nothing is ever culled, rejected or scrapped. If they foul something up, they are selling it to SOMEONE anyway. Add to that the lack of government regulation and you are playing Russian Roulette if you eat anything from there.

    You really have to look hard on the bag of any dog treat to find out where it originates.

    Exactly so. Increasing profit margin by using cheaper imported ingredients is perfectly legal. Whatever happened to good corporate citizens that were just as concerned about ethical as legal? The rules do not require posting origination of what makes up the animal feed.

    Saw the story on Fox Detroit. Never have used Jerky treats or anything much from China. Too bad FDA and our Health Canada can't patrol things better and not only with dog food but ours too! 600 dogs have died!!!!Bad news folks.
