Vitalife products are manufactured in China. If you check the product description on the Petsmart website it says manufactured in China in small print. They may be fine but I try to avoid any people or pet food that is manufactured or has components sourced in China. Sometimes its hard to track down sourcing information but if I can't find the information I won't buy the product. My concern with the chicken strips is that one batch may be fine and another tainted.
