FDA Issues Warning for Dog Jerky
Published October 25th, 2013
GAINESVILLE- Thousands of dogs have been sickened after eating jerky treats.
The Food and Drug Administration has known about the problem for years but still doesn't know what exactly causes it.
The FDA has issued a warning for dog jerky treats containing chicken, duck, sweet potatoes, and dried fruit from China.
Dog Owner, Eileen Pizarro says the warning has affected the way she shops for her pets , "I've never been comfortable giving them, I don't know why, I have thought about it but no we don't give 'em"
Pet food manufacturers are not required by US law to state which country each individual ingredient has come from.
Anyone noticing that their pet is suffering from any illness after eating jerky treats or any other new food should hold on to the packaging label before contacting their veterinarian.
