My mother is dog-sitting and she bought these beef bones. I unwrapped it from the shrink wrap (which was completely sealed) and wanted to smell the bone before giving it to the dog. I immediately noticed a smell of fertilizer. The kind of smell you would find in the fertilizer aisle at the hardware store. I let the bone sit out for a long time, and it still smells like fertilizer. I want to taste it to see what flavor it has, but I am worried because of the smell. I let the dog smell it, and he hesitated before trying to take it. I did not give it to him. Maybe I will wash it off first before giving it to him. Or maybe just give him other treats instead.
Anyone else notice a weird smell on the bones?
