Today is a great day for pets, the pet industry and for pet owners worldwide. For those
of you that are unaware, yesterday Nestle Purina issued a withdrawal (not a recall)
of their chicken jerky products. Today Milos Kitchen owned by Delmonte issued a
recall of their chicken jerky. As we all know, the Chinese chicken jerky industry has
dominated the pet treat market for years with Milos, Waggin Train and Canyon Creek
brands leading the pack. These products only existed because chicken breast meat
in China is essentially a waste product. China is not allowed to import chicken to the
USA into the human food chain, so they found a back door and a home for it in the
pet industry. Dogs have been eating anti-biotic, glycerin (and god knows what else)
laden chicken jerky and have been getting sick and dying for years. Finally this comes to an end.
The beauty of the news is that these products are gone for good. China will never stop putting anti-biotics not approved
by the USA in their chicken, so there will be no chicken available for companies like Nestle and Delmonte to grab
up for pennies on the dollar and pass off as being "natural and wholesome for pets." Justice has been served!
The bottom line is that there is only one chicken industry in China so one-by-one every other brand of Chinese
chicken jerky will soon be gone. It's officially time to dance the dance!

you always have such interesting news and gorgeous pics.
I read just yesterday that the fda has not made an official recall yet,but they found out
that it was the antibiotics given to poultry there,some were sulpha drugs
which will kill most dogs,they have no way to digest it,and die from colon issues.
I will dance the dance,because I have only bought US treats since my pup got sick and he is on the mend.
