Dog Treats Alert

Posted: Updated:

Federal health officials are cautioning pet owners about a potential link between dog illnesses and some chicken jerky dog treats.

Since November, 2011, the Food and Drug Administration has logged 900 reports of illnesses and deaths of dogs that have been sickened by chicken jerky pet treats from china.

Waggin Train, Canyon Creek Ranch, and Milo's Kitchen Home Style Dog Treats are the treats in question.

The FDA has not issued a recall on any of the products.  But, they are cautioning people about the increase numbers of complaints, until they find out, if they are the products tied to the illnesses.
