FDA urges caution about giving pets chicken jerky treats made in China
MILWAUKEE - Local pet owners are concerned after the FDA gives another warning about chicken jerky products made in China. Since 2007, the FDA has issued this warning three times. Since then, the agency has received reports about 36-hundred dogs becoming ill because of jerky treats. Nearly 600 of those pets have died. Most of the jerky treat related illnesses are related to products made in China, but inspections of those plants have not come up with an exact cause. In the meantime, the FDA urges pet owners to be cautious about providing jerky treats. If your dog gets sick after eating chicken jerky you're urged to see a veterinarian. You should also save any of the unused treats and packaging for possible testing.
