FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Eagle, Idaho) March was a bad month for pet food manufacturers. A number of pet food brands recalled their items for a variety of reasons. EuroCan Manufacturing recalled their pig ear dog treats, due to possible salmonella contamination, Wellness Beef Topper for Dogs and Blue Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe took their products off shelves due to possible contamination with beef thyroid hormone and Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food had to recall their products following the death of a dog. Pentobarbital was found in the dog’s food and in two cans of food in the manufacturer’s facility. For this reason, many pet owners want foods made in America for their furry friends, and Betsy Farms ( can be of help.
“All products we sell are made in the United States using ingredients sourced right here in the country. This ensures the ingredients are wholesome and all are free of artificial flavors and colors as well as wheat. The products contain real poultry, in the form of chicken, duck or turkey, to ensure pets get the protein they need to thrive,” staff members at Betsy Farms (www.betsyfarms.com) explain.
A pet owner cannot be too careful when it comes to their animal’s health. Imported pet products, especially pet jerky, have been in the news quite a bit lately. March was only one of many months where items had to be taken off of store shelves to ensure pets weren’t harmed. In February 2017, Blue Buffalo Homestyle Healthy Weight Chicken dinners were pulled for possible aluminum contamination, and Against the Grain Pet Food Pulled Beef with Gravy was removed for possible contamination with pentobarbital. Metal was found in PetSmart Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food.
“Bacteria is of concern with any food, as improper handling and storage can lead to the growth of these germs in food. Betsy Farms uses a unique process to reduce the risk of bacteria contamination. The poultry is cooked at a temperature high enough to ensure the bacteria is eliminated. This is done before the poultry is pulverized and mixed with other ingredients. The finished product is then cooked again to assure product integrity,” staff members continue.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, raw pet food is of most concern when it comes to salmonella. This does not mean pet owners can feel safe if a product isn’t recalled by this organization. Recalls may be requested by a manufacturer, by the FDA or through an FDA order under statutory authority. Pet owners need to be proactive to ensure their pet isn’t harmed before one of these steps are taken.
