Can someone please tell me why the eff we still import ANYTHING from that cesspool known as China??
That is the problem ... the FDA is making tests that don't prove anything.
How would you respond to "We have inconclusive evidence that your job may be hurting someone ... so we think you should return your paycheck for the year"? You'd probably tell them to go fly a kite (or something a little more blunt). I know I would.
Before you ask a company to throw away $million$ of dollars; you had better to be able to conclusively show 'Why'. The FDA has failed to do this very basic task.
Linda The Dog just LOVES her Stuffed Animal Squeak Toys. She has played with them so much that they are destroyed, so now it is time for replacements. I have gone EVERYWHERE and can’t find a toy that is NOT made in china. Doesn’t ANY American Company make these any more? I REFUSE to buy ANY product made in China. Not even for my Dog who doesn’t understand world politics.
Messed up our dog big time. Pooping blood all over. This was after one or two weeks of giving them to her. On the other hand she loved them.
Thank you so much for this post. We have a bag of the Waggin Train chicken jerky treats in the cupboard!!! I am usually good about checking for the “made in china” tag but missed it on these. Thankful my yorkies didn’t care for them.
We lost our cairn terrier Callie last year, fine one day and deathly ill the next. Now I wonder if it was because of something like this. :(
The melamine deal that the Chicoms sent us as a protein additive (also missed by the FDA) killed our great Pyrenees that was the best coyote deterrent we’ve ever had. Never forget the ChiComs are commies first and always.
This is Bullsh!t.
I broker several million lbs of dog treats from all over the world per year and am aware of no evidence whatsoever pointing to imported chicken treats causing animal fatalities.
FDA has been looking into this for some time and have found nothing difinitive.
Why should the companies recall the product when even the ultra reactive FDA can state nothing with confidence.
If you’re worried, don’t buy the treats.
Even before this happened we always checked the label. Nothing ever from China or Mexico.
I wouldn’t buy dog food made in China, period.
But seriously, this has been going on since 2007. 14 dogs died in 2007 from pet treats imported from Canada.
The connection to China is that the wheat gluten (who feeds wheat gluten to dogs?) added to the treats is from China.
