Why did your package change from reading "Made in the USA" to "Crafted in the USA"?

Last Updated: Feb 05, 2018

The FTC governs the use of “Made in the USA” and only allows that claim if 100% of ingredients come from the U.S. (https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-made-usa-standard). 

All our products are manufactured in the USA, other than our PureNZ line which is made in New Zealand, and most of our ingredients are sourced here in the U.S., however there are ingredients we obtain from other countries because the quality is better or there are supply issues. (Example: bananas come from the Philippines, carrots may come from New Zealand or Poland. All ingredients and their sourcing are listed on our webpage: www.zukes.com under Nutrition > Ingredients > click the plus sign next to each ingredient to view country of origin).

When we updated our packaging look in 2017, it was an opportunity to make sure we were in complete compliance with all of our labeling. At Zuke's, we take a simple and wholesome approach to everything we produce. We use only ingredients we would eat ourselves, and that's just part of why all our recipes are free from fillers, by-products, and artificial colors or flavors. We work to ensure our quality and safety standards exceed the AAFCO standards for pet foods to give you added peace of mind. Our ingredients meet stringent U.S. quality standards, and they are never sourced from China. No matter which Zuke's dog treat or supplement you choose, rest easy knowing he's getting a delicious, high-quality complement to his daily diet made with ingredients you can trust.
