 BHA:Butylated Hydroxyanisole — A preservative:  Is a human carcinogen or cancer-causing agent!  According to the National Institute of Health, BHA in the diet has been found to consistently produce certain types of tumors in laboratory animals. BHA enhanced stomach and urinary bladder carcinogenesis. Causes squamous-cell carcinomas in stomachs.  Cancers of this type are among the most lethal and fastest acting.

*Propylene Glycol: is a second cousin to ethylene glycol, which is ANTIFREEZE!  According to Dr. Wendell Belfield, DVM, states that propylene glycol (a pet food ingredient closely related to anti-freeze) causes destruction of red blood cells.  According to Kevin Woodward in the book “Veterinary Pharmacovigilance,” propylene glycol is toxic to dogs, cats, horses, cattle and other animals.

*Chicken By-Product Meal:  These are ground parts from poultry carcasses such as feet, heads, feathers, intestines, necks and undeveloped eggs and can included any rendered materials including cancerous and diseased tissues.

*High Fructose Corn Syrup: REALLY??? This is sugar! Diabetes??? 

I didn’t know what “ARTIFICIAL PEANUT BUTTER FLAVOR” was! Guess what? Ingredients: Propylene glycol, water, natural and artificial flavor. Per:http://www.watkinsonline.com/

Banana Flavoring: Ingredients:
Water, propylene glycol, alcohol (24%), artificial flavor, tartrazine/FD&C yellow No. 5, sunset yellow FCF/FD&C yellow No. 6.   From the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI): Yellow #5: May be contaminated with such cancer-causing substances as benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl (or chemicals that the body converts to those substances).  Yellow #6: From CSPI:  “Yellow 6 caused adrenal tumors in animals.

*Copper Sulfate:  Copper sulfate is registered for use as a weed seed treatment, for treatment of tree wounds, for control of fungi and fungal/bacterial slimes occurring in wood, and in water systems, including sewer pumps and force mains, pulp and paper mills, cooling towers and spray ponds.

 *DL=Methionine:  is a supplement amino acid. Per Dr. Aldrich, a pet food industry advisor:  “The starting materials for production of DL-methionine are acrolein (a 3-carbon aldehyde) derived from propylene (a petroleum derivative), methyl mercaptan derived from methanol and various sulfur sources and hydrocyanic acid (HCN).”*Per Wikipedia: Acrolein is a severe pulmonary irritant and lachrymatory agent.  It was used as a chemical weapon during World War I. It is, however, now outlawed by the Chemical Weapons Convention. Studies on rats have shown an increase in cancerous tumors from ingestion.

Onions: Highly toxic. Kills red blood cells in dogs/cats. Leads to anemia, weakness and breathing issues.

Meat by-Products. The FDA determined this ingredient to be a probable source of pentobarbital, a lethal drug used to euthanize animals. This  pet food/pet treat ingredient more than likely contains rendered euthanized companion animals and the lethal drug used to kill them.

SUGAR???? Seriously????

SOY GRITS: Soy is an estrogenic and can wreak havoc on your dog’s endocrine system. Soy contains a natural chemical that mimics estrogen, the female hormone Cheap Filler. Left over from the human food chain. No nutritional value.

RED #40: From Center For Science In The Public Interest: “Red 40, the most-widely used dye, may accelerate the appearance of immune-system tumors in mice.  The dye causes hypersensitivity (allergy-like) reactions in a small number of consumers and might trigger hyperactivity in children.  Considering the safety questions and its non-essentiality, Red 40 should be excluded from foods unless and until new tests clearly demonstrate its safety.”

    How about Cadet duck breast? Ingredients are duck, vegetable glycerin(like glycerin soap?), soy protein isolate, salt? Should I throw them out they do say product of China? They are distributed by IMS Pet Industries, Inc 34 Passaic St. Wood-Ridge, NJ 07075

    • Yes PLEASE throw them out!
      The problem with the testing of these “jerky” products is that they are testing them for “known” things…..NOT “UNKNOWN”, and that could be where the problem lies!
      So ANYTHING that says CHINA on treats or food should find its way to the “round bin” as quickly as possible! You just can’t be TOO careful!!!! 😉
      By the way, you can make your own jerky by thinly slicing boneless chicken breast or thighs, place them on a non-stick cookie sheet that you’ve lightly sprayed with PAM, and bake in a slow oven (about 150* to 175*) for several hours until they dehydrate. For convenience, make at least 2 pans worth! Let cool completely, break them up into smaller pieces, then place them in a ziploc and keep in frig. They will stay for months!
