Safest Yak Sticks in the U.S.
“If it doesn’t ADD value, it only SUBTRACTS”
Knowing all too well the problems importing products into the U.S., Rogue avoids the quality and safety issues that other products and distributors drop the ball on. Every batch of Rogue’s Yak Sticks are directly sourced from USDA inspected sites in Nepal and quality tested to ensure the product was made from actual milk and wasn’t diluted with other known products! Regular quality testing of batches is a simple process employed with an AFFCO approved lab to determine and ensure correct nutrition content. It’s not hard to do the right thing!
Testing for verification is NOT common!
No such thing as too safe! The Rogue Quality Process goes above and beyond. The ability to test for safety is too easy and inexpensive not to do it!
The Rogue process goes further to monitor the real health problems, like pathogens, that can plaque any food item for pets. Rogue regularly tests for 4 different pathogens (Salmonella, Listeria, E.coli, Shigella) to create a product quality score for every batch of yak sticks.
Changes in Quality Control scores between batches signals quality markers have changed and requires additional testing to understand what has changed. Anyone who says it’s unnecessary to test or can verify they test, doesn’t have our experience in the industry to know why it’s important. Just that simple!
Added safety measures in our packaging process are designed to avoid common biological problems with yak sticks, like mold growth from extreme environmental temperatures from storage to store. That’s why we use a combination vacuum packaging that draws a positive pressure from the bag to remove oxygen, then injections a shot of nitrogen into the bag. Removing free-oxygen from the package stops any and all biological growth.
