For those of you, like myself, that want to stay away from chinese glutens of all kinds -- be aware that Triple Crown makes a product called everlasting treat and everlocking treat that goes into a rubbery type ball that is supposed to give dogs a long term chew.  However, the treats that go into this rubbery ball are made out of chinese wheat gluten and is also produced in China.  It is said to be tested and free of melamine, but many of us choose to not take the chance. 
The CEO of the company responded to me in a very defensive way and said that I was simply uninformed about the high standards that China has for food products.  Also that the recall is only an isolated incident and that I was reacting to media hype.  (What hype?  The media has been notoriously quiet on the recall) He claimed that we are just misinformed about the high standards that are in China regarding food production, because he travels there and he knows.... 
I say hooey for him.  I choose to pass along the information so other "misinformed" pet owners like myself can choose to buy American, not Chinese!

Thank you for passing along ALL the information! What a crappy attitude for a CEO ....IMNSHO.... I certainly would not buy from that company for several reasons, and his manner is certainly one of them.

I noticed today the pig rolls that I thought I used to buy are "made in china", so I passed them up. These are made/sold by HARTZ. I presume that was the same brand I used to buy, but it's been awhile so I am not sure of that and I don't have an old empty package to compare.

Thanks again, all us 'uninformed' pet parents that have been constantly on the internet for nearly 3 months solid, really appreciate being told we know nothing and we should go by what he wants us to believe. This rude Triple Crown CEO sounds like a triple jerk to me. But as always, that's just my opinion.

Triple Crown and others who tested should put copies of their lab reports on their web sites.

You should have asked him if he eats the food when he "travels there". Yuck!

Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts

I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Great idea JustMe they should be made to eat only the food from there while there and when they arrive back here too if its so safe, HA! over 100 million pet owners here are misinformed about all the great food from melaland? Not anymore and we will demand transparency or we buy elsewhere as I'm sure its having an impact. Never saw so many sales of pet food yet not one organic pet food was on sale in this weekends sales papers, odd.

Actually, the Chinese DO have decently high standards (at least more so than 10 or 20 years ago).  The problem is that no one cares what the standards are... there's no accountability and no personal investment in rules and standards so they simply aren't followed.  It's partially cultural and partially b/c it takes time for new values to be established.  Even stop lights and traffic lanes are just considered guidelines to many of them.  Things are on the up and up over there, but they're simply not there yet.

However, when dealing with importing/exporting - I think we're going to have a problem surviving the water WHILE they get there.

check the rawhide before you buy it for your dog. most of it comes from china. it's so hard to find a usa made product.

Unfortunately, most of us have to read up on products in forums, then do a lookup on the Internet.  But you can find treats, Wet and Dry foods made in the US.

I think all food distributors, whether for human consumption or pet consumption should be forced to disclaim on their labels where the ingredients were imported from.  I'm tired of using the "When in doubt, Throw it out" method when purchasing any food product.
