The FDA Jerky Pet Treat Ongoing Investigation – What You Should Know

You may have heard that the FDA has been conducting an ongoing investigation over the past few years into claims that certain jerky treats may have caused injury to pets. During that time, they have tested over 1,200 samples and have not discovered anything that they believe would cause a pet harm. On October 22nd, 2013, the FDA posted an update on this matter and requested help from veterinarians who encountered dogs that had health issues that might somehow have been connected to jerky treats. Numerous news outlets ran stories related to this recent FDA posting despite the fact that the investigation has been going on for years without any conclusion.

We have received many calls from worried pet owners over the safety of our products and we would like to confirm that our jerky treats remain safe to feed to pets as directed. How do we know this? There are a few reasons that you should feel comfortable to continue feeding Dogswell jerky treats:

1. Our manufacturing facilities are highly regarded and are held to strict quality assurance standards
2. Dogswell has a rigorous testing program for both raw materials and final products in order to ensure the safety and quality of our treats.
3. Third party auditors ensure that all food safety controls and procedures are followed

While our treats remain safe to feed according to our feeding guidelines, it is important to always monitor pets as they consume treats, provide plenty of water and exercise, and ensure that treats are not used in place of a healthy, balanced diet.

Dogswell is a company made up of pet lovers and owners. As such, the quality and safety of our treats are of the utmost importance to us. We remain committed to only producing high-quality treats that meet or exceed FDA guidelines.

If you still have questions about Dogswell jerky treats, please feel free to contact us at info@dogswell.com or at 888-559-8833.

Thank you for choosing Dogswell.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What does DOGSWELL do to make sure its products are safe?  
Our manufacturing facilities are designed to prevent cross-contamination and all of our products are manufactured under strict sanitary conditions. We closely monitor these facilities, and also regularly visit them to ensure the quality and safety of our products. Our co-packing plants operate under HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), a system for managing food safety. Also, U.S. - based Third Party Food Safety Auditors make announced and unannounced visits to the audit all food safety and quality systems in which our facilities have always received high scores.

Where are your products manufactured?
Most DOGSWELL products are manufactured in the US. Some of our treats are manufactured in China, where we hold these facilities to the same stringent quality standards we maintain at our US facilities. DOGSWELL sources its ingredients based upon where we find top quality ingredients and a high quality supplier whose facilities and practices meet our safety testing standards.

Why are the jerky treats made in China?
China is a country where dark meat is more popular due to its inherent fat and flavor. DOGSWELL believes it is less wasteful to obtain our white meat in China where it is abundant, rather than sourcing it domestically, where white meat is less available and held at a premium. Not only do we care about your pet's health by sourcing only the healthiest meat available, we also practice sustainability by reducing as much waste as possible.

How do you test your products?
Every batch of DOGSWELL product is tested for melamine, bacteria and other contaminants.  All of our ingredients are carefully chosen and we conduct regular testing in U.S. facilities using APPA-approved methodology. Quality assurance is critically important and has been part of our standard operating procedure, and an integral part of our company, since day one. Please see below for a link to our test results.

How do you prevent salmonella from contaminating your jerky products?
The DOGSWELL® facility is specifically designed to prevent any cross contamination. Salmonella is one of the easiest contaminants to prevent. Salmonella is killed after 23 seconds at 160 degrees. We ensure that that all of our poultry jerky products are cooked at 160 degrees for ten hours. While some manufacturers choose a quicker “flash cooking process” to irradiate their products, DOGSWELL® has chosen the slow-cooking method to provide a clean, safe treat.

What is the Cage-Free Difference?
Cage-free chickens are kept in barns where they can roam, scratch and perch as they please. Our chickens eat a natural diet, have plenty of room to roam, and live and grow free of stress.
