Mickey’s Quality Standards Verified: Unaffected by Pet Food Recall

Safe, Made in USA Chicken Jerkey
Dog lovers, take note: the FDA has received several reports of dogs becoming sick or even dying as a result of consuming chicken based dog treats made in China. The treats have been deemed unsafe as a result of unapproved antibiotic residue found by the New York State Department of Agriculture. Concerns about sick pets have been voiced since 2007, with spikes happening in 2011 and again in 2013, even after an official warning from the FDA in 2011.
At Mickey's Pet Supplies, we are committed to providing safe alternatives for your pet and making sure you avoid feeding your dog any potentially harmful treats. Read on for more information about the brands that have been deemed unsafe for your pet as well as healthy, all natural alternatives that will keep your dog happy, healthy, and safe.

Unsafe Dog Treats

In January 2013, Purina and Milo's Kitchen voluntarily recalled dog treats produced in China that tested positive for the potentially harmful antibiotics. The products recalled include Purina’s Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch dog treats, and Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers. These treats should be disposed of and avoided until health officials make any further statements about their suitability for consumption.

Healthy, All Natural Alternatives

Fortunately, Mickey's Pet Supplies remains unaffected by the large dog treat recall and offers several healthy, all natural alternatives for your pet. If you're looking for a chewy chicken treat, try True Chews Chicken Jerky Fillets, Plato Organic Chicken Strips, or Evanger's Natural Chicken Jerkey. These treats are all made with U.S.A. sourced chicken and offer additional nutrients to keep your dog healthy.
Newman's Own also offers organic chicken dog treats and Sojos features palate pleasing Chicken Jerky and Chicken crunch sticks.

Premium Bully Sticks

While all of Mickey's chicken treats are totally safe and all natural, you can also offer your dog a special treat by picking up a pack of grade A, odor free bully sticks for dogs. One of our most popular items, the bully sticks come in a range of sizes to please your pet. We offer thin "bully junior" sticks, medium sized "bully select," plus the rare and premium "super monster" bully stick.
Whether you choose an all-natural chicken treat or a grade A bully stick for your dog, you can rest assured that Mickey's Pet Supplies only offers the highest quality, U.S.A made products for your pets. We personally inspect all of our products and source the highest possible quality to ensure the health and safety of your furry, four-legged friend. We appreciate that you want the best, safest treats for your dog, and we take that responsibility seriously and thank you for choosing Mickey's.
