Reports of serious illness in dogs associated with the consumption of Chinese-made chicken jerky treats continue to be filed by pet owners.
Yet the exact cause of these illnesses still remains a mystery.
After extensive laboratory testing, FDA officials have been unable to uncover a specific contaminant.
So, to date, there have been no official product recalls.
However, according to a recent article posted by msn.com, FDA documents obtained by the publisher suggest a possible link to three popular chicken jerky products and their big name producers:
- Waggin’ Train Jerky Treats or Tenders (Nestle Purina)
- Canyon Creek Ranch Jerky Treats or Tenders (Nestle Purina)
- Milo’s Kitchen Home-Style Dog Treats (Del Monte Corp)
However, the FDA stated in its latest official bulletin:
“No specific products have been recalled because a definitive cause has not been determined”
