It seems I remember some trouble with "pig ears" a few years back, I guess bottom line is give the doggies a different treat and always avoid the "pig ears" just to be safe.

Yes, there are so many recalls of dog treats over the years. I always think it's best to make home-cooked/baked dog treats, so we know they are safe.
