Pet Food News

Who’s Next?


Information provided to is showing some private label brands and another large importer are scrambling to test their jerky treat products for illegal drug residues and/or are taking their own initiative to remove non-recalled jerky treat products from China from store shelves.

It was shared that Hartz is &ldquoutting all of its chicken chew products on hold.”  Hartz is performing additional testing on their chicken jerky treats in light of the recent recalls from Milo’s Kitchen, Waggin Train, and Canyon Creek Ranch.

Also, new information provided to states that the Kroger Corporation (and all divisions including Smith’s, Dillons, King Soopers, Ralphs, Frys and Fred Meyer stores) will be removing their own brand of jerky treat (Pet Pride) and the Dogswell brand from all stores “temporarily”.

It has been shared with me by several in the pet industry, many expect the entire product category of chicken treats from China will disappear completely from the market.  Years too late (and at what cost to so many), but that will be a welcome sight.


Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
