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
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.
