FDA Update On Chicken Jerky Treats

Today the FDA released an update to their Chicken Jerky treat investigation. They still do not know the cause but are asking for help from the veterinarian community by requesting that lab testing be submitted to their database. They continue to investigate the Chinese chicken supplies to try to determine potential sources of contamination. The update includes the current tally of sick and diseased pets:

Benefits of Raw Goat Milk Yogurt

Raw Goat Milk Yogurt is not the thick creamy delight you are used to. Its tart, almost tangy flavor and milk like texture make it irresistible for your pets. You can feel good about giving this treat to them, knowing that the active cultures help to balance the gut flora and improve digestion.

NEW: Raw Goat Milk Yogurt

Steve’s Raw Goat Milk Yogurt marries premium nutrition to crave-able treat. This super-food is packed with probiotics and the full gamut of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. Feed it as a snack or use as a food topper to add raw nutrition to a dry or canned meal.

Why Raw Dog Food Is Good For Dental Health

I recently had a friend post on Facebook that her cute little Chihuahua needed serious dental help. She posted a picture of his plaque ridden teeth and asked for advise. I found it very interesting that many people were recommending Greenies or even a “natural” version of a Greenies, but no one suggested the most natural form of teeth cleaning… raw chicken necks.

New Ingredient in All Diets

Steve’s Real Food recently made a major re-formulation to our raw dog food. We removed all our synthetic vitamins and added some really exciting ingredients such as coconut oil. We love coconut oil for its multitudes of health benefits.

Sea Salt vs Table Salt in Raw Dog Food

A while back a friend and I were having a healthy argument about salt and sea salt. My friend is the nutritionally versed but not neurotic type of person. He believes that there is a lot of hype out there and people are getting duped into spending more money on products because they are “Natural”. I do not disagree with this. The term natural is not regulated and can is now being put on just about every product. I even saw an “All Natural” raw chicken breast at the grocery store that was clearly a cage raised bird dripping with hormones and antibiotics, but because they did not add any synthetic chemicals to it, it was “All Natural”.

The Truth About Recalls (part 1)

FDA regulations do not allow the presence of salmonella in cooked pet foods (canned, kibble, freeze dried or dehydrated). Even though we produce and distribute raw meat products, we must abide by the same standards as a cooked product. It is in our best interest to comply with the FDA and “voluntarily” recall our products even though there are no reported cases of sickness in pets or humans.

Product Announcement

At Steve’s Real Food, quality and safety are our biggest concern. We are writing today to inform you that we are voluntarily recalling one lot of our Turducken Patties with the lot number B209 (best by 10/27/13), and the UPC 6-91730-14204-9. This recall affects less than 200 five pound bags which represents a small fraction of the food distributed. We are taking this precautionary action after learning that one of our Turducken patties produced in this lot was tested positive for Salmonella by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
