The FDA has received some 1000 complaints from pet owners and veterinarians, claiming close to 1000 dogs have gotten ill from consuming treats made in China, known as chicken jerky.
The scary thing is that the complaints range from violent vomiting to kidney shutdown, and even with the rash of complaints, the companies contend there is nothing wrong with the snacks.
According to MSNBC, the treats are being sold under the label of Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brands produced by Nestle Purina PetCare Co., and Milo’s Kitchen Home-style Dog Treats, produced by the Del Monte Corp. The first two companies purchase the product from JOC Great Wall Corp. Ltd. of Nanjing, China.
The FDA has investigated and run toxic tests in the past, which has uncovered virtually nothing, yet the complaints continue. The companies also claim that their products are not responsible, either. The FDA has sent officials to China as recently as April to continue the investigation into the suspect food.
