ConsumerAffairs.com is casting doubt over a company in India that “introduces itself as a manufacturer and exporter of Rawhide Dog Chew products.â€
They received an e-mail solicitation from Rex International, a company based in Kanpur, India, which touts itself to be a global name in dog food and chew products and has â€œthe best infrastructure and technically vibrant workmanship that makes us (the) preferable supplier of many European Companies.â€
The email urges U.S. businesses to become distributors of its rawhide dog chew products that include sticks, ear, bones, and chips.
The company also stated in their email that they guarantee the quality of their products and ensure a quick shipment time.
ConsumerAffairs.com tried to contact Rex International and ask how the company manufactures its treats, information about quality control procedures, the cost of items, and other general questions. But Rex International did not reply to ConsumerAffairs.com
U.S. makers of rawhide products said they had never heard of the company. They warned pet owners about buying products from overseas and companies that weren’t responsive. They added that rawhide is not regulated in many countries. The makers said some countries use arsenic-based products as preservatives and bleaching chemicals in the white rawhide dog treats.
ConsumerAffairs.com recommends to be cautious of any email solicitations from this company or to stay informed and do research before engaging in any business with Rex International.
