Safety is all about Trust
At Whole Life, safety is our number 1 priority. Our brand is rooted in the love we all have for our pets and the trust you need to have every time you open a bag of Whole Life treats. We are transparent in everything we do, not only letting you know where we buy our ingredients, but also where our products are tested and how you can verify results based on the date code printed on your bag.
About our testing procedures
Every batch of product we produce, every day is tested for Salmonella, E-Coli, Listeria and Staphylococcus aureus (Staph). We use a computer program to randomly select finished product from every tray we produce. We collect those samples and submit them to Valid Labs on a daily basis.
Checking results on your bag
On the back of each bag, at the top, is a date and lot code. This code is tied directly to a unique batch of product and unique test run on that product. To view the lab results of any bag, simply type the code into the box below and click "fetch." The picture provided provides an example to follow.
Enter the letter and 4 digits that follow the letters MFD above the expiration date. Example E2412
