As Jackie says, don't beat up on yourself, you're not stupid at all, you trusted the brand as we all do.Oh no. I looked at the label of Shivon's jerky treats (something new I recently bought) and they were made in China!!!! I feel so stupid!!!!! Why the heck didn't I check the label?!?!?! I threw them out right away. I've been so careful until now... OMD... Thankfully Shivon is okay.
