Investigation of Earth Animal

Earth Animal Accused of Falsely Advertising its No-Hide Dog Treats

For years, dog-owner consumers have known that the rawhide in traditionally-made dog treats is often dangerous for dogs to chew, as it can splinter upon ingestion and lead to internal organ damage. In response to this issue, Earth Animal released its product “No-Hide Dog Chews.” As implied by its name, Earth Animal claims its line of chews do not contain hide, making the treats more digestible than treats that are traditionally made with rawhide. In January 2019, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) investigated Earth Animal‘s production of its “No-Hide Dog Chews” on complaints about the presence of rawhide in its product and allegations of potential misbranding. PDA determined that the product was not misbranded.  However, in February 2019, following the death of a dog that inhaled one of the chews and experienced fatal respiratory complications, a leather chemist determined that “the material [in the No-Hide chews] is absolutely rawhide split material.”
