Thank you for posting this - it's a valuable reminder to stay away from chicken jerky products imported from China, Vietnam, and thereabouts.

Thank you for posting this-- my girls get duck jerky from Dogswell every day; I definitely recall that the package says it's manufactured in the USA, but the meat is apparently sourced from China. Sigh.

I wonder if that's a recent change for them, since they just had a major price drop...

Time to find a new supplier. :(

Dogswell has been sourcing meat from China for years. The only reason I know this is because Costco carries their treats. I check ALL the labels at Costco hoping for an economical buy but nearly everything is from China.

Not sure if Dogswell kibble and canned food is also from China?

(Side note: the last time at Costco they did have a giant bag of US-sourced Yummy Chummies Gold, for ~$12, which contained hundreds of big soft stinky treats that you can break up into thousands of training-size treats!)

(Side note #2: while reading packages now I have noticed tons of treats like bully sticks and meat jerky being irradiated, from different countries of origin.)

I don't feed the dogs any of the brands listed, but it is still making me really nervous. :eek:
