The US Food and Drug Administration is reporting 2200 cases of dog and cat illness due to jerky treats imported from China.
Of this number 360 dogs and 1 cat died.
FDA reports of illness from these treats go back to 2007. They are advising people who feed their animals these treats to be aware of symptoms of illness including vomiting, decreased appetite, decreased activity, diarrhea, increased water consumption and to stop feeding the treats if your pet shows these symptoms.
It makes more sense to advise people not to give their pets any treats that were manufactured in China!
