Click image to enlarge

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to caution consumers about a potential association between the development of illness in dogs and the consumption of chicken jerky products made in China. The FDA issued this chart showing the brands of tainted chicken jerky treats that have been reported to the agency. Since 2007 more than 2,200 pet illnesses, including 360 cat and dog deaths, were reported to the FDA, all mentioning the animals had eaten chicken jerky treats from China. It's recommended that you not only avoid these brands of chicken jerky treats, but also any type of pet treat or pet food produced in China.
