carmspack are they selling chicken backs and necks for dogs at $1.50 per pound ?

what prevents the chicken frames from being human edible then if the frames have to be differentiated "be compliant with USDA (not for human consumption)." ?

If they were okay , then wouldn't it be your decision whether you use them for yourself or your canine?

just asking .

kbella999 Carmen,

I was actually making bone broth with some of the chicken frames for myself. As far as I knew they were just as good for humans, not that I would eat chicken frames. I was only told that it is a USDA requirement now. Here is the place I get them from DARPPRODUCT

I don't know if I would buy "not for human consumption" . Is there something off about them , maybe a different handling or storage .

I do know that sometimes ground product , chicken with finely ground bone , is marked with charcoal ash so that there is no repacking for human consumption, or mix up with a non-boney ground . This is usually for butcher shops that carry canine meats as a customer service alongside their normal trays or packs of meat .

Sunflowers They use dye to stamp meat for humans, too. I see no problem with it.

Marking chicken frames with dye

The place where I got my chicken frames from has now started marking the frames with a dye (like the stuff in cake frosting) to be compliant with USDA (not for human consumption). Does anyone think it is safe to feed your dogs the frames with the dye on it? I would think it would not be safe but wanted to get other peoples opinion on it.
