Regardless of whether the treats or food are on any recall list, I personally would not want to feed any item that contains wheat gluten, corn gluten, or rice protein concentrate. Huh Huh

We simply do not know "what" will be recalled next, but we do know these items have been contaminated in the pet food industry.

I just tossed all our kitty treats except for catnip. My 11 year old son was pretty sad, since we gave them the treats as Christmas presents. He understands though - I've kept him up to date on developments.

There just isn't any way for me to know what is safe anymore, since labelling is so dishonest and manufacturers don't know or won't disclose their ingredient sourcing. My girls always liked Pounce treats, but in recent months one of them kept throwing up when I gave them to her. I thought she just had a sensitive stomach, but now I'm not so sure.

I have some of the Mark & Chappell treats too. I think they're most likely just fine. They do have wheat and rice flour in them... no mention of any glutens of any kind. Plus, they're made by a UK company and manufactured in Slovenia.... not saying Slovenia is any better, but Europe hasn't been hit by any recalls as of yet.

I also have some "Natural Purrs" that I've been giving the kitties. No glutens in those either.

There are no commercial treats out there that I trust right now.  My kitties love treats though so I have been giving them little tastes of healthy people food.  Examples: a spoonful of plain, organic yogurt (very low lactose, and healthy probiotics plus calcium and protein), or organic salt-free canned wild salmon (one that claims it is tested for lead, mercury, and PCB's at every run!), or a bite of cheese (they love feta), or bits of boiled organic chicken breasts.  My little girl kitty, Chloe, also happens to love boiled shelled edamame (which I cook without salt) so when I make it for myself I share with her.  This one is weird, so I doubt it will help others.  They also LOVE bagels, but I don't intentionally give them any.  (They have actually learned to steal them from the pantry and rip into the plastic to get the bagels, so I have to be really careful - very odd cats I have...)  If anyone has any other ideas for good treats, please share - I would love to expand their repertoire!

Does anyone know where BLUE DOG BAKERY cookies are made?  I called at least 5 days ago and have not received a response.

Buy local.  Buy organic.
If you ate today, thank a farmer, hopefully a small, local farmer.

Remember the thousands & thousands of pets that died to give US a wake-up call about the safety of ALL food and products.
