The Food and Drug Administration issued an alert to consumers this week about the illnesses and deaths tied to jerky treats from China. Nearly 600 pets have died and over 3,600 have reported illness after eating chicken, duck and sweet potato jerky treats. The biggest problem is they cannot figure out the cause when testing contaminants.
Rest assured, we’ve researched our food and treat sources and we do not carry these treats or any treats made in China for that matter. But we know that many pups just love those jerky treats, so we sniffed out the best alternative made right here in the USA.
Bixby Jerky treats are available in a delicious chicken flavor and they have 2 healthy formulas: Hip and Joint or Skin and Coat. Both are free of wheat, corn, soy, preservatives and animal byproducts.
Also a Chicken jerky treat, Tuckers, is an all-natural, grain-free, gluten-free treat that is hand rolled in Wisconsin using chicken breast sourced in the United States and Canada. They are even produced under USDA oversight from 100% human grade raw ingredients, so you know they are safe for your pup!
