Exclamation Treat warning

I hope I'm allowed to post this here, just recieved it in an email:

Subject: Jerky Treats

I am sending this message to everyone hoping that it might save a life. I
just found out today about another problem with dog food/treats where
ingredients came from China. This time it is chicken jerky treats. There has
been no specific treat named.....just chicken jerky treats from that
country.

One of the symptoms that eating these treats can cause is loss of appetite
and weight loss as a result.

I had been feeding my kids chicken jerky treats that I bought at Smiths and
a couple times at Walmart. They were Wagon Train jerky treats.

The package said they were all natural and 98% fat free. I thought I was
feeding them something good. They all stopped eating. The vet thought it was
due to the hot weather. Then Festis started getting sicker and ended up
losing 5 pounds total. He started having seizures and then had the last one
that was so bad we had to put him to sleep. After hearing of this latest
crap....I called the vets office. It makes sense now. Why he stopped eating,
why his blood work all came out fine...why we couldn't figure out what was
going on. I stopped giving my kids the jerky treats after Festis passed away
and their appetites came back.

I know this wasn't my fault. I know I thought I was doing the best for my
kiddos. I just want everyone to know about this and to stop feeding this
stuff to your dogs if you are. From this day forward I will make damned sure
my dogs will never consume anything connected with products from China.
First Peppermint was made sick from the first round (I was feeding her
Organic dog food even) and now this. It really pisses me off.

At the advice of my vet I submitted a report to the FDA on their web site.

I've been to China and seen it with my own eyes! You don't want to eat anything from there! Look at all dog treats, your frozen fish, any canned oranges ect. I used to order fish most the time when going out to eat... thinking I was making a healthy choice... most of the fish comes form China! Now I eat veggie when going out most the time.

So sorry for your lost! Makes me so mad. Thanks for sharing.

P.S. most of the apples in apple juice comes from China too! DO NOT GIVE THAT ****TO YOUR KIDS!

There was a warning issued last November abt chicken jerky 'treats'.

Last Spring there were several recalls issued for Pig's ears . . . also coming from China.

The Dog Food Advisor is a great source for keeping up to date. They will even send new alerts to yr e-mail inbox.

I noticed Cal getting runny poop after eating Waggin Train chicken jerky treats. Like BorderKelpie I thought I was giving him something good. Hadn't even noticed, at first, that the bag said 'made in China'. Threw it out right away. I bought an inexpensive food dehydrator and started making my own chicken jerky. Whenever I am tempted now to buy him a treat, I make sure to triple read the label and scan the rest of the bag for anything suspicious.

I have been giving my dogs duck jerky bought at CostCo. They love those things. I checked the bag. In tiny writing it says, "Made in China". I am not going to throw them away because my dogs haven't had any issues and I only give them one piece a day, but I won't buy them again.

Cowboy, I did not know that about the pig ears, good to know as most the time they are loose and not in a package. Does anyone know anything about the holves? I will not give my dogs anything from China ! I can not believe our country takes inports from there for anything that is to be eaten, be it man or beast.

Yikes ...

I stay away from products made in China for just that reason; I'm not convinced of the quality. It is getting harder and harder to find anything packaged that ISN'T made in China.

For those in the UK, you can get the Cookie's Delikatess line (made in the EU) from zooplus.co.uk. Dokas is also made in the EU.

I'm sorry for what you had to go through. Thanks for the warning. I just threw away the Walgreens jerky treats we had, made in China. Scary.

When you give pig ears, hooves, rawhide or any product that comes from China, that animal could of died from anything including diseases. I only give chew type toys that are made in the USA and they have to go throught the FDA.

I did not know that ears and hooves came from China. Is there some place to order some that don't ? I love the hooves for cleaning my dogs teeth...
