As reported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, there are jerky dog treats from China that are now being recalled and removed from the market shelves. Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch by Nestle Purina PetCare are being removed from the market. Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers by Milo’s Kitchen are also being removed from the shelves.
These dog treats are recalled because antibiotic residues (used in poultry in China) were found in these chicken jerky treats from China. They do not raise health risks, but are still removed from the shelves because they obviously should not contain antibiotics.
These recalls are highly unlikely to be related to the reports of illness related to jerky pet treats. FDA are still looking into the numerous complaints about jerky treats making dogs ill, and even causing many to die. So far, 360 deaths and thousands of illnesses have been reported.
Pet owners are reminded that they should be aware about all of the foods they are feeding to their dogs. The foods eaten by the dogs should be safe and also of good quality.
