The contaminant? Trace amounts of the same illegal antibiotic residue found in Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch jerky treats made by Nestle Purina PetCare, and Milo’s Kitchen products by the Del Monte Corp. The drugs are approved for use in China, but not in the U.S.

Purina tests on animals and now they poison them too!
Thanks for posting Carrie.

Thanks for the awareness Carrie. No one wants to take chances with their pets.
I am so happy that we have our own pet food plant right here in our small town and they use products from the local farmers that are organic.
I won't buy even food products for people if it comes from China.

I wish we had something like Elizabeth M. has in her town. Thanks for posting Carrie. None of these companies should buy any ingredients from China.

Be careful giving the GREENIES! Animals may have terrible reactions to these!!
They don't tell you that though but the VET DOES!!

Have to make certain my oldest and his wife know about this - she volunteers at their local animal shelter. Thanks for the info.

Anybody these days ought to know not to buy ANYTHING from China, which means that we HAVE to spend time READING labels. If I see China on anything I see in the grocery store it goes right back on the shelf. And not only our babies but our children also. They make toys to kill the children. They know that China hates us but the greedy Americans will sell us out for their cheap labor. They (the greedy Americans) don't care if they (Chinese) kill us or not. As long as they make their money that's all that matters.

I signed.
