WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies have executed a federal search warrant at one of the nation's largest suppliers of natural dog treats.
EPA spokesman Rich Hood said the agency is investigating environmental and other alleged federal crimes at Wichita-based TreatCo. Thursday's operation involved about a dozen people from the EPA's criminal investigative division and EPA technical experts along with agents from the state Health Department and Wichita police.
TreatCo's receptionist told The Associated Press she was too busy and could not refer a call to anyone else for comment.
The company's Web site says the company processes more than 2 million pounds of product monthly. It buys beef byproducts from Kansas and Texas slaughterhouses to make natural dog treats.
