Jerky Treats Made in China Still Unsafe

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Each year millions of dollars are spent at holiday time on our pets. Here’s a reminder to choose carefully while shopping. Make your own treats this year or knit a sweater!

The FDA continues to get complaints concerning dog kidney damage as a consequence of eating jerky treats made in China. 

The current contaminant is not known. Previously, melamine, a type of plastic used in manufacturing, was identified in the last pet food recalls in 2007.

Signs of the recent toxicities are loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, and thirst changes.
