    I'm not sure if anyone else has posted this information, but if it means that we could save lives of our precious pups, I think it's worth posting.

    On Tuesday, the FDA issued a warning -- not a recall -- about alerts it has received over several years concerning Chinese-made jerky treats in tenders or strips made of chicken, duck, sweet potatoes and/or dried fruit. Since 2007, 3,600 dogs and 10 cats in the U.S. have fallen ill after eating jerky. Of these pets, 580 died.


    This is a list of affected brands compiled at the beginning of this year (2013)

    Nestle Purina PetCare Co.:

    Waggin’ Train

    Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats

    Del Monte Corp.:

    Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky

    Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats

    Publix Stores:

    Chicken Tenders Dog Chew Treats

    IMS Pet Industries Inc.:

    Cadet Brand Chicken Jerky Treats sold in the U.S.

    These aren't even all the brands affected, the following is a comment left by an an owner that lost one of her dogs:
    Lost our Greyhound Bella to Dogswell Chicken jerky Breathies. Severe diarrhea. Almost lost our Cattle Dog with the same treats. When I contacted Dogswell, they responded with "Sorry for your loss". They have totally lost my business and I tell everyone to throw away ANY food/treats made in China.
