People, Please!! Wake up!!

I really don’t understand what more we all need to see, hear and read before we wake up to the truth.  The facts are all but smacking us in the face, over and over again.  There are groups rallying to stop the illnesses and deaths but yet people are still continuing to support these companies.  Are they thinking it is a scam?  Maybe that it couldn’t happen to them? That it is only cheap dog food or treats?  I have news for you.  It is all yet none of the above.

The factories in China are miles long.  Nothing is segregated inside those factories, hence the contamination of our baby formula etc.  There are no standards.  Why do you think it is so cheap for companies to send their goods there?  I’ll tell you why.  Because every company that does business in China has no regard for its consumer.  They willingly dropped their standards and quality to save a few dollars.  I hope it was worth all the jobs and lives lost for those few dollars.

This lack of standards shows in our dog food.  Once again, I am stating that any food, pet or otherwise, that states “Made in China” or “Imported for…..” should be left on the shelf!!  Your health and that of your beloved pet is NOT worth the health risk.  If economics is a factor, there are alternatives.  Wal-Mart carries a Canadian made, gluten free dog food that runs about $38 for a 40 lb bag.  It is quite a good food.  Again, there are alternatives to taking the risk.

Update on Chicken Jerky Recalls

As of May 22nd, 2012, there appears to have be nearly 1,000 dogs affected by this recall.  Now this number is probably bigger as these are just the cases that have been reported.  I am sure there are many more out there.

Please people, check your labels and any treats or food that is made in China or “Imported By:” should be automatically tossed in the trash, never to be eaten by your pet.

As always, any updates will be posted about this and the Diamond recall currently exploding.

Check ALL Your Dog Treats…RIGHT NOW!!

Everyone needs to go straight to their cupboard where they keep their dog treats and dog food for that matter…look at the back, side….wherever it tells you where these treats are made. If you cannot find a country but it says IMPORTED by: then you can be rest assured they are made in China too. THROW THEM OUT!!
When will we learn that there is NO QUALITY CONTROL in China…why do you think they are so cheap to manufacture our goods?
If you want to complain…don’t complain about lack of quality control in China, but the lack of ethics in the companies that have moved their business out of North America and to a country where lying is an expected business practice.

 

This is NOT limited to just those you have heard about but ALL treats and food that state they are made in China or state “Imported by”.

The life of my canine kids is worth much more than the price of a bag of treats or a bag of cheap dog food!!
