|unfortunately it is all about the financial bottom line for these big companies, they will source ingredients from China because they can get them cheaper, I am sure they hope people will not care where they source from. Since the big pet food recalls in '08 pet families are hyper alert for good reason.
I find it so decieving for companies to try to convince us that the findings about toxic ingredients is all just paranoia and we should just trust them. FORGET That!
I have started making my own chicken strips, I know where the ingredients come from, I know how they are made and I know when they were made, and it is less expensive and better than any chicken strip out there/
One of my personal clients just bought a bag of chicken strips from Costco, she has been giving them to her dogs (4 of them) for a few years, I have been warning her that they are from China, well, up to last week she had never had many problems. Within a few days of starting the new bag all 4 of her dogs were vomiting, had terrible diarrhea and stopped eating. Her Vet said they must have gotten into something toxic which blood work showed with elevated kidney and liver enzymes. Well, after a few days of IV fluids, medications and lots of TLC and big Vet bills they are back on track.
She returned the bags to Costco, who said they were getting huge amounts of returns on them and the new duck strips from Cadet which is made in China too.
Nothing made in China will ever be given to my pets, food, treats or toys. I guess I am a Made In The Fantastic USA snob here.
