That's really scarey, Eric. Thanks for posting. I've always used Eukanuba until my Vet put my ladies on special diet. He swears by Science Diet saying it's the only one that hasn't been recalled, but who's to say it won't be.

I'm guessing we all know about Chinese rawhide, right?

I recall the chicken jerky chews from China were contaminated and were recalled. Are there others?

I'm not sure, Eric, but only buy USA chewies. Jeffers is my best source and they clearly mark which are US made vs. Chinese. I made the mistake of trying to buy some at Target once and they wouldn't sell them when I got to the register, so I'm guessing it's a fairly large problem.

I've begun buying from PETFLOW and found this:

Cadet Bully sticks come from Brazil
Red Bone from Paraguay
Gourmet Natural, Canine Caviar and Pure Buffalo come from India

If that helps anyone.
