EAGLE, Idaho —Betsy Farms, makers of quality snacks for dogs, today announced the launch of a signature line of tasty jerky recipe treats that are not only made in the U.S.A, but also only use real chicken, turkey and duck raised in America.
Since 2007, it has been reported that hundreds of pet deaths and thousands of pet illnesses are attributed to unsafe jerky treats, nearly all of which were imported from China. As an ongoing issue that has yet to be solved, last week the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposed new rules that would finally increase the regulations surrounding the safety of all pet food.
“Today it is more important than ever that pet owners are vigilant about the quality of the foods they give their animals – and we’re very pleased that the FDA is now taking serious steps toward enforcing the safety of products in this category,” said Cord Christensen, CEO. “Even some jerky treats that claim to be made in the U.S.A. use meat imported from China. We developed Betsy Farms’ jerky recipe to give owners the peace of mind that the treats they give their pets are made with quality ingredients that are sourced locally – right here in the U.S.”
Given the safety concerns regarding jerky treats for dogs, Betsy Farms also employs a unique cooking process to eliminate potentially harmful bacteria. The new jerky treats are available in three savory varieties, including chicken, turkey and duck.
Found exclusively at Sam’s Club and Walmart, Betsy Farms Jerky Recipe Treats are offered in 12oz to 48oz sizes, with prices starting at $7.48 per bag. Visit www.BetsyFarms.com for additional information for Betsy Farm’s line of quality dog treats.
Launched in 2013, Betsy Farms® offers a line of high-quality jerky recipe treats that dogs love. Each product is made in the U.S.A. with wholesome ingredients sourced in America (all poultry is raised in the U.S.A.). The delicious treats are available in three varieties, including chicken, duck and turkey. Each product is made with real meat and provides protein that all dogs need. The line is available exclusively at Sam’s Club and Walmart.
