    PLEASE beware of treats made in China - UPDATE #10

    In the past 2 weeks, the FDA has received over 400 complaints of dogs getting ill and / or dying after eating chicken jerky treats made in China. I am still trying to track down more info, this is what I have found so far:

    Pass this along to everyone you know who owns a dog. One thing the above article emphasizes: The FDA has been posting warnings associated with the treats since 2007, but most consumers are not aware of the notices.

    Note: The leading US importer of chicken jerky treats has stubbornly refused to recall. Cases of their products line the shelves at Giant Eagle, Wal Mart, Walgreens and other stores, and coupons for consumers continue to be found in newspapers and circulars.

    This is RECENT, as of Feb 19, 2012!

    I sent part of this as an e-mail to friends who have dogs. Freedom, do you know if it also involves cat treats? I didn't send it to cat people, but I certainly could.

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Since all of that pet food poisoning a few years back, I stay away from unknown brands of treats, and always check all the labels too - just to be sure.

    Elyse, the article only discusses dog treats, specifically chicken jerky.

    Treats from China aren't the only things you need to watch out for. I try to avoid products from China. Period.

    I've given them chicken jerky only once. When Frankie decided he was going to try to swallow the thing whole and was choking until I pulled it from his throat, they've never had them again. I threw the bag out and don't accept them as gifts.
