FDA: Chicken Jerky Treats maybe dangerous

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) renewed a warning about giving your dog a jerky chicken treats. They said that there are dozens of new reports of f mysterious illnesses and some deaths in dogs by eating jerky chicken. There are around 70 cases so far this year after reportedly eating chicken jerky products imported from China. The warnings about this product started back in 2007.

Unfortunately the FDA officials have not been able to find a cause for the illnesses. And 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. Dog owners are advised to report any related case to FDA’s Pet Food Complaint site.
