An effort is underway to ban chicken jerky treats made in China, as these treats are being blamed for numerous canine deaths and illnesses in the US.
NBC News reports no recalls have been conducted on these products and the US Food and Drug Administration has taken no action, citing some recent product testing.
A Change.org petition launched September 5 is calling for the products to be pulled from stores. The petition has amassed over 60,000 signatures.
My wife and I long ago made the decision to stay away from jerky treats or any treats with similar texture. I think for some dogs, these products mess with dog’s digestive system. I just don’t like them.
