|Costco is selling this product. I wasn't aware it was made in China until I examined the bag very closely as it is printed in eeny, teeny lettering in French no less. According to www.dogaware.com this product is under suspicion by the FDA.
In September, 2007, the AVMA issued a warning about chicken jerky strips from China possibly causing kidney failure in dogs. This warning was repeated in December, 2008. I have not been able to find any updated information since then, but I've personally heard from five people from May to September 2008 whose young, seemingly healthy dogs suddenly developed kidney disease while being given chicken jerky strips. It could be a coincidence, but please avoid feeding chicken jerky strips from China to dogs until we know conclusively that they are safe, and report any possible adverse effects to the FDA. Note that these products often appear to be made in the US, but if you search carefully, you'll find "Made in China" in tiny print somewhere on the bag. See my Recall page for more information.
I've recently discovered the copy & paste feature on my computer.
