Jerky Treats From China Are Killing Our Pets!

 

I just want to make sure everyone has seen this! It’s just so infuriating!

Since 2007 3600 dogs and 10 cats have gotten sick after eating jerky treats. And that more than 580 dogs have died! This is ridiculous! They don’t have any guidelines they have to go by over there in China when it comes to making these.

 

In 2007 Melamine, a chemical used to make plastic, was intentionally put in pet food in China! Of course that killed some pets! Just last year, a Salmonella outbreak at a facility in South Carolina led to the recall of 30,000 tons of dry dog and cat food. Forty-seven people in 20 states and two in Canada became ill after handling the contaminated food.

Director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine,Bernadette Dunham, said “This is one of the most elusive and mysterious outbreaks we’ve encountered”. On Tuesday, the FDA issued a letter to veterinarians asking for help tracking the illnesses. The agency also released a fact sheet for pet owners warning of possible symptoms, including decreased appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, diarrhea, increased water consumption and increased urination.
If your pet becomes sick after eating any jerky treats, they want you to let the FDA know. And keep any you have left in a sealed bag. In case they want to test them.
The FDA says there isn’t a particular brand of jerky treats from China to watch out for. The illnesses have been linked to many brands. The one common factor the cases share is consumption of a chicken, duck, sweet potato, and dried fruit jerky treat or jerky-wrapped treat, mostly imported from China.
Last January they re-called the following treats, because they found 6 drugs in them! All from China!

Nestle Purina PetCare Co.:

Waggin’ Train

Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats

Del Monte Corp.:

Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky

Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats

Publix Stores:

Chicken Tenders Dog Chew Treats

IMS Pet Industries Inc.:

Cadet Brand Chicken Jerky Treats sold in the U.S.

Personally, I have checked all of our treats and food to make sure they aren’t made in China. This is just so scarey and so ridiculous. Why are we getting these things from China if there’s even a chance of a problem? The FDA said they’ve been getting sick since 2007!

    It is now April 2015 and stores in the US are still selling these products. These products should have been removed from shelves a long time ago.

  2. Cindy Brooks says:

    Thanks for the reminder to check our pet products to be sure they aren’t from China..

  3. Karen Glatt says:

    This is so terrible, and why are these products not taken off the market in the US! These treats are poisoning our dogs and does the government not care! It is so sad to hear that so many dogs have died!
