Thank you for your question. There has been a lot of discussion lately on the Internet, and in the media, regarding dog treats made in China. The FDA website is the most reliable source of information on this. The FDA has issued no report that identifies any of the Drs. Foster and Smith treats as being the cause of an illness or death in animals, and there is no recall of our products. The latest information from the FDA is that after running many tests on products from multiple manufacturers for many harmful substances, they still cannot establish any link between any cases of illness in animals and treats from China. We are continuing to watch this situation closely.
Please be assured that our goal at Doctors Foster and Smith is to provide pet products of only the highest quality. The treat products we receive from China come from companies that we have worked with for many years. These companies hold quality and safety certifications from many US and European inspection agencies, and are frequently inspected by our representatives from the United States to assure they are following proper safety and quality control practices.
