Scout & Zoe’s adds USA-made chicken jerky and sweet potato treats to an award-winning lineup

ANDERSON, IN – Finding safe, nutritious alternative treats for your pet is getting a lot easier, with the announcement of new jerky and potato treats from Scout & Zoe’s.

The award-winning Indiana-based company, known for its planet-friendly production process and commitment to premium, healthy ingredients, is launching a new line of chicken jerky and sweet potato treats that are available at retail stores nationwide and through the company’s website,

“We’re incredibly excited about these new products, because they allow us to take our commitment to pets and their families to a higher level,” says Cindy Dunston Quirk, founder and Chief Dog Lover of Scout & Zoe’s. “A treat isn’t a treat if it’s unsafe and unhealthy, like so many products that are making it onto store shelves these days. This is our opportunity to provide a healthy and trustworthy alternative, because our pets deserve better.”

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, chicken jerky treats manufactured in China have been directly linked to more than 500 deaths over the past three years. The products in question have been recalled, even though the companies involved have admitted no wrongdoing. Warnings have been issued, and investigations continue, leaving only one grim reality: sooner or later, similar dangerous products from China are bound to make it back onto store shelves in the future.

“The idea of our pets being poisoned by so-called ‘treats’ is just horrifying,” says Cindy. “As a company in the pet products business, it’s shameful and embarrassing.”

Cindy decided there was only one way to provide tasty chicken jerky treats that families and their pets could trust: the Scout & Zoe’s way.

 “Like our antler chews, these new products are made by people who care about pets and their health,” says Cindy. “No one should have to worry about whether the treats they’re buying are dangerous. If we can stop just one pet from getting sick or dying, our mission is a success.”

Scout & Zoe’s new treats, available in two varieties, are made in the United States and will be manufactured in the company’s tradition of planet-friendly production and packaging.
