March 9, 2012 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has today issued an important update for consumers regarding the safety of Chinese-made chicken jerky products for pets.
As published here in a November 2011 article, these treats may be associated with serious illness in dogs.
Since then, the FDA has continued to receive additional complaints regarding these same products. So, on Friday, March 9, 2012, the agency issued another important update which you can read in this official FDA link.
In summary, the most recent FDA bulletin concludes:
No specific products have been recalled because a definitive cause has not been determined. The FDA continues to actively investigate the problem and its origin. If the FDA identifies the cause, the agency will take appropriate action and notify the public.
