Try these products. Made in the U.S.A. with no ingredients from China. Plant meets same and sometimes higher safety standards as those making food for humans:

Under the "about" tab, you can find on the drop-down menu a section that tells about their manufacturing and food safety.

Only the Milo products made with chicken were recalled but if those are still on the shelf, you may want to mention it to the manager, the recall came from the manufacturer and some stores only rely on FDA recall notices. I found the treats on the shelves at Walgreen's and CVS, told the managers about the recall and then and stood in the aisle until they were removed.

I went back and now the Milo beef products are there but the chicken products have been removed.

IMS Trading Corp today announced it is voluntarily withdrawing its Cadet Brand Chicken Jerky Treat products sold in the United States until further notice

The Company is taking this action after learning this week that the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets (NYSDAM) found trace amounts of antibiotic residue in samples of Cadet brand Chicken Jerky Treat products. These antibiotics are approved for use in poultry in China and other major countries, including European Union member states, but are not among those approved in the U.S. *Cadet Brand Chicken Jerky Treat products are safe to feed as directed and have not been linked to ANY illnesses in dogs or humans. However, due to regulatory inconsistencies among countries, the presence of antibiotic residue is technically considered an adulteration in the United States.


Just came from PetGood in New Jersey, all Cadet recalled treats still on shelves, manager told me recall wasn't valid in New Jersey - trying to contact corporate headquarters but no contact info on website. Recall was nationwide but manager refused to listen to me when I told her.

Thank you all for the tips and the links. It is getting where I just don't know what to feed my baby.
She has been eating Kibbles and Bits, Small Size for years and I have seen no problems. (knock on wood)
And she has not had any trouble with her treats, which right at this moment I forget the name of but will check if they come from Usa. Has anyone heard of any trouble with this brand?

I have also been giving her small amounts of Little Champions Senior mixed in with her dry because she is 10 and a half years old and needs senior food and soft food is easier for her to chew.

We feed our almost 8 year old Orijen. (http://www.amazon.com/Orijen-Grain-Free-Adult-Food-5-5lb/dp/B000W5P0W6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358721384&sr=8-2&keywords=orijen) It's grain free, contains a ton of meat and Dogfoodadvisor.com gives it 5 stars. It is pricey but it requires less food per feeding.

Dogfoodadvisor.com does not like Kibbles and Bits, says it has no nutritional value. My dog is doing well on Merrick Classic Dry Dog Food.

I'm sorry I haven't done this sooner. I put 1 lb beef or chicken liver in the food processor and liquify it. To that I add 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup corn meal and 1/2 cup wheat germ. pat it onto a greased cookie sheet, cut it into small squares and bake at 350 for 15-20 mins. some people drop teaspoons onto the cookie sheet and flatten them. They store well in the freezer, do not store at room temperature because they will mold. I use these as dog show bait also.

Thanks---mrr50---even before the recall I found some of the prices a bit much. I want to try your recipe.

Orijen is amazing food. I used to feed it to my yellow lab, but then we got our chocolate lab and he has a lot of allergy issues and it was too much for his system. Feeding them different foods was a headache, so now they're on Natural Balance Venison and Sweet Potato. It isn't quite as good as the Orijen, but it's still high quality and not made in China.

Basically if a dog food contains corn, grains, by products or any ingredients that aren't easily pronounceable then you shouldn't be feeding it to your pet.

:slinkaway I'm getting old. A quick tip I forgot to explain. When I state to 'cut it into small squares', I use a pizza wheel to score the patted out dough before I bake it. I makes things really easy.

My dog stares at the oven until the treats are done.
