    Three brands of chicken jerky dog treats are said to be responsible for - a “mysterious illness in at least 600 dogs in the U.S.” - producing a sometimes deadly canine illness, though the extent of its spread is unknown, state federal health officials in numerous media reports March 13. In turn, an MSNBC TV report Tuesday statedthat “federal health officials have turned to consumers to help investigating problems possibly tied to chicken jerky pet treats made in China." Also, a log of complaints collected from pet owners and veterinarians contains references to at least “three popular brands of jerky treats that may be associated with kidney failure and other serious ailments,” according to internal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) documents obtained by msnbc.com. In turn, the FDA notes how the extent of the spread of this mystery dog illness is unknown.
    Vitals - 3 big brands may be tied to chicken jerky illness in dogs, FDA records show

    Stumped by mysterious illnesses in at least 600 dogs in the U.S., federal health officials have turned to consumers for help investigating problems possibly tied to chicken jerky pet treats made in China.
    A log of complaints collected from pet owners and veterinarians contains references to at least three popular brands of jerky treats that may be associated with kidney failure and other serious ailments, according to internal Food and Drug Administration documents obtained by msnbc.com.
    Of 22 “Priority 1” cases listed by the FDA late last year, 13 cited Waggin’ Train or Canyon Creek Ranch jerky treats or tenders, both produced by Nestle Purina PetCare Co., the records show.


    Another three listed Milo’s Kitchen Home-style Dog Treats, produced by the Del Monte Corp. The rest listed single brands or no brand.
    Priority 1 cases are those in which the animal is aged 11 or younger and medical records that document illness are available, an FDA spokeswoman said. In many cases, samples of the suspect treats also are collected.
    The report, obtained through a public records request, is the first agency indication of any brands linked to illnesses that have climbed since the FDAwarned pet owners about jerky treats in November. That was the FDA's third caution about the pet products since 2007.
    Nestle Purina and Del Monte officials said their treats are safe and FDA regulators said repeated tests have shown no absolute tie to any brand or manufacturer.
    My dogs don't get jerky treats. But I am glad to see PURINA is still safe. It's all I give my babies. But only in dog food...not treats.

    Rule of thumb? If it's manufactured in CHINA, DON'T GIVE IT TO YOUR PETS.

    That's nice. This thread is meant as a warning that more beloved pets are dying like they did in 07 due to poison in their food, manufactured in China. Therefore, pet owners who have not seen the news about this, have now.
