Default Product of Germany, EU regulated

I purchased a huge bag of Cadet Gourmet Chicken Breast at Costco. I noticed they were a product of Germany. I asked a friend about EU regulations and he said dog products covered by the EU were fine and sometimes more strict than the US. I bought the bag. Any thoughts? I can't seem to Google a straight answer. Thanks folks!

I always read the ingredients: Chicken, Vegetable Glycerin.............but, that would mean any part of the chicken as it doesn't specify. Plus, considering the issues regarding the dog treats from China I didn't want to overlook or be naive about anything. I don't know how strict the regulations are in the EU.

However, the front of the package does advertise 'Chicken Breast' treats so that should answer any concerns about what parts.

Sorry, can't help. I generally will buy dog treats and food made in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, but that's all. These days, it's probably a false sense of security...you never know.

I see they do have a 5 star rating, but I did find a blog that says the chicken is from China..... so it would be a no go for me. I'm just not sure if the blog is right or not. I didn't get as many hits as I thought I would, trying to research them.

The bag clearly states "product of Germany" distributed by IMS Pet Industries, Wood-Ridge, NJ. I have been informed by someone that the EU (European Union) has very strict guidelines. I've never had any purchases with them before therefore, wondering about the nutritional value.

DeeLind7 - I'm sorry I didn't read your post correctly. You read a blog that gave it a 5-star rating, but concluded the chicken was indeed from China? Chicken from China, produced in Germany, shipped to NJ for manufacturing - off to the rest of the country to sell. UGH! Shouldn't the packaging reflect this if this is the case? If it's produced in Germany wouldn't the chickens be of German origin?

Color Me Confused!

I read a few articles. The chicken recall were the ones made in China. The same brand is now made in Germany. Although China does a lot of trade with Germany, they are not part of the EU. I'm hoping that means Germany took over producing the treats after the recall.........at least that's how it looks. Of course we know EVERYTHING we read on the Internet is true. (cough)
