    Default Chinese made chicken jerky sickens dogs

    OK when will we learn....This summer I began giving my dogs this MILOS brand chicken jerky treats. They were supposed to be natural and healthy....then I looked at the label and saw that it was made in CHINA

    so I emailed the Milos people, who are a DelMonte subsidiary and asked WHY, after the plastic in the dogfood fiasco of just a couple of years ago, WHY were they using a Chinese manufacturer for this food

    their response the other products in our line, they are made in America

    really? you can't find ONE plant in the US that can dry out and package chiken breasts

    so now :

    Chicken jerky treats linked to mystery illnesses, deaths in dogs

    By JoNel Aleccia
    Chicken jerky treats may be to blame for dozens of new reports of mysterious illnesses and some deaths in dogs, prompting a renewed warning for pet owners by the Food and Drug Administration.
    At least 70 dogs have been sickened so far this year after reportedly eating chicken jerky products imported from China, FDA officials said. Thats up from 54 reports of illness in 2010. Some of the dogs have died, according to the anecdotal reports from pet owners and veterinarians.

    FDA officials say they have not been able to find a cause for the illnesses. Extensive chemical and microbiological testing has failed to turn up a specific contaminant and officials did not identify a specific brand of treats. They note that the reports of illness have not conclusively been tied to chicken jerky products, also sold as chicken tenders, chicken strips or chicken treats.
    The new warning follows previous FDA cautions about chicken jerky treats in 2007 and 2008. But after a high of 156 reports of illness in 2007, the number of complaints dropped. Now, it's rising again.
    Dog owners and vets are reporting that animals may be stricken with a range of illnesses within days or hours of eating chicken jerky, including kidney failure and Fanconi syndrome, a condition characterized by low glucose.
    Symptoms may include decreased appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, diarrhea, increased water consumption and increased urination. If dogs show any of these signs, stop feeding the animal the chicken jerky products, FDA officials said. If signs are severe or persist for more than 24 hours, seek veterinary help.
    Most dogs have recovered, officials said.
    Illnesses can be reported to the FDAs Pet Food Complaint site.
