My dog loved, Loved, LOVED those chicken wrapped yams when they came out several years ago. But I had to stop buying her the made-in-China dog treats after reading about all those problems. Both the Milo's Kitchen & the Waggin Train treats are made-in-China, at least the ones I regularly see at the store.

We switched to made in Colorado or USA. Twice the cost, so dogs only get them half as much. But worth it. They also have treats that are like dried sweet potato jerky & they love those.

my dog loves the duck jerky from Waggin Train and I've heard the chicken treats have problems but I have not heard anything about the duck jerky.

I no longer buy any dog treats made in China for my dog, there are plenty made in the USA, you just have to look for them.

Sure enough: The Waggin Train was cleared from the shelves but Milo's remains on the shelf (at least today.) Thanks for the heads up or I would have purchased Milo's since Waggin Train is kaput. Oh well...my canine companion likes dolphin safe tuna (I don't think she cares about the dolphins but I do.)

Ugh, I'm so tired of reading these, I'm going to have to start making treats for my dog instead of buying them.

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 make my own dog treats, it's easy. The problem with USA made treats is that IN THE PAST (meaning I don't know if this still happens) ingredients from China were used. When this happens it does not have to be listed on the label because it was made in the USA.

This is my rule too. And if I can't find the orgin it stays in the store.

I am the world's worst baker sp Caseu doesn't want me to make treats. :)

The problem with so many of them is that the "Made in China" notation is in EXTREMELY small type (sometimes is looks like not more than 2 pts type size) on the package. It is very easy to miss, so your rule is a good one.

We have tried to become less reliant on the chicken or beef jerkey & give more biscuits, & that seems to be working out well. These are the new favorites of my dog & my daughter's dog:

I give my dogs chunks of apple, carrots or frozen banana instead of store bought treats. They love them.

What sort of ingredients do you use?

I'm going to buy the ingredients and see of my little hot dog (he's a miniature dachshund) likes this dog treat recipe. (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/dog-treats-i/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=dog%20treat&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page)
