Made in the USA
My guess is that there is a land-office business underway, right now, repackaging rawhide chews made in China, Thailand, and Mexico, and putting them in "Made in the USA" packaging. The markup from this grift would embarrass a crack dealer, and who would check? The penalty would be ridiculously low, and since almost none of these fly-by-night chew toy companies have a name to protect, the real business model would be to sweep earnings out and overseas every week, and to declare bankruptcy soon after the first question was raised.
