On the local news tonight

Woman says her pet died after eating dog treats | Money - WGAL Home

I'm not sure if that will be clickable. There was a story on the local news tonight about the jerky treats causing illness in dogs.

Jerky treats, or basically any treats made in China are under investigation by the FDA or the past several months due to a large number of dogs being getting sick or dying after eathing them.

This is why China and dog are two things that do not go together in our house. Heck, I'd ban anytihng made in china from the house if I thought it would be practical.

It worked for me. That is so sickening! Poor Floyd! I check the bags too. I already do not trust chicken jerky treats from other brands even except for Blue Wilderness Trail treats. I have seen the big bags of Chicken Jerky Treats in Costco too. Except for Milkbone, it seems like Costco does not have decent treats for dogs. I hope the FDA finds the link soon so these bags can be recalled.

It seems like the distribution of these treats is increasing. I am seeing them more and more in stores. Just had to tell me brother to stop giving them to his dog.
