This week leading up to July 4 we're highlighting American products, jobs and stories for our Made in America series. What are your favorite Made in America products? Please comment and share your ideas.
American-made products aren’t only for people—pets deserve the best we can give them as well. Better yet are U.S.-made and union made products—like the brand-name products made by members of Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers (BCTGM).
What dog can resist Milk Bones? BCTGM Local 36G in Buffalo, N.Y., produces a variety of sizes, flavors and biscuits, including Flavor Snacks, Healthy Favorites, Soft and Chewy Dog Snacks and other assorted Milk Bone branded dog treats.
After dessert comes dinner, and BCTGM Local 366G in Oklahoma produces 1,500 tons of dog food each day and maintains an excellent safety record. None of its union-made pet food products were recalled because of contamination, unlike many other pet products in recent years.
Along with BCTGM Local 42 in Fairburn, Ga., members produce 30 different Nestle Purina products, such as Purina Cat Chow and Dog Chow, Friskies, ProPlan, ONE Products and more.
