Tragically once again, suspicious dog food from China is making our animals sick. If you have any chicken jerky treats at home, stop feeding them to your dog and consider these healthy dog treats instead.
Here’s an excerpt about the suspicious treats from a November 19, 2011 announcement by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA):
“FDA is again cautioning consumers that chicken jerky products for dogs (also sold as chicken tenders, strips or treats) may be associated with illness in dogs.
In the last 12 months, FDA has seen an increase in the number of complaints it received of dog illnesses associated with consumption of chicken jerky products imported from China. These complaints have been reported to FDA by dog owners and veterinarians. Although most dogs appear to recover, some reports to the FDA have involved dogs that have died. To date, scientists have not been able to determine a definitive cause for the reported illnesses.”
