Jerky Treats liked to Illness

The FDA released this week  a correlation of interest between gastrointestinal distress in dogs and some cats and jerky treats.   580 deaths and 3,600 dog illnesses are believed to be linked to jerky treats from China since 2007.  The FDA is working to identifyreason for this link, but as yet one has not been identified.


The FDA is collecting information related to this issue at  FDA Consummer Complains for Maryland 410-779-5713.

More information can be found at  www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumer updates/umc37143.htm


Avoiding jerky treats or making home made ones is a smart move.
