Our Chickens are Flying the Coup

By: Scout and Zoe's
INDIANAPOLIS - July 16, 2015 - PRLog -- She's been vocal about local for years, now she has even more to cluck about. Cindy Dunston Quirk, The Chicken Jerky expert is squawking again and this time it's about the USDA's recent decision to send our chicken to China for processing. Of even greater concern is that these chickens will be returned to us and we'll never even know they have traveled overseas.

Dunston Quirk says, “Worse yet, no US inspectors will be in the plant in China to ensure quality standards. It's a huge health risk and I'm not alone in sounding the alarm about this one. Recently, Consumer Advocate Erin Brockovich was reported outraged that this import/export policy exists. Even National Chicken Council spokesman Tom Super said that the arrangement “doesn’t make much sense” economically.

The Chicken Jerky expert says, "I've been concerned about this since BEFORE more than 500 dogs died from being fed Chinese chicken jerky. In fact, I've been such a proponent that I've been making all natural dog treats at Scout and Zoe's since 2012.

I'm so adamant about sourcing local US chicken that Scout & Zoe’s dog treats are produced less than half mile from where the chicken is raised. I make sure to have the highest standards of quality, traceability and accountability. I believe our pets deserve no less!"

Dunston Quirk believes that flying chicken 7,000 miles each way to be processed in China is for the birds. We as consumers deserve more consideration than this. I think we need to keep our chickens home!
