Where were the potential treats made... any connection to the baby formula in China? Jumping to conclusions but it doesn't sound like good stuff.

If this happens with treats it could just as easily happen with regular dog food. That's scary!

We take chances every day buying products we think are safe. The same goes for eating at any given restuarant.

Wonder if they came from China? It seems nothing is safe anymore especially the food.

When will it be safe to buy food and/or treats for your pets? It seems like everything we buy now could potentially end up killing or seriously injuring them.

No salmonella? I would have guessed that. How can the manufacturers guard against something that even the gov'e can't find???

I don't shop at WalMart any more. Seems most of their products are from China....the final straw was with the dog and cat food scare a few months ago. I would rather spend a little more money knowing that things were made here in the USA. One of my brothers went to Giant to buy some fish and noticed that was from China too. Needless to say, he put it back.

More and more of this is happening due to overseas products being placed in animal food. I think pet food should meet the requirements that we use for our consumption. If your kid dies from contaminated food, here comes the lawsuit...I think animal owners should have the same right.

If the FDA cannot find the problem, how can a pet owner be an informed shopper? This is dangerous for our pets.

One day there may be safe stuff for our pets to eat...I don't understand why their regulations are so lax compared to the HUMAN food processing plants...animals are living things to don't they deserve the same respect?

It makes it hard to feel good about giving them treats. It would be great if the food and treats were better regulated.

Is anyone else as nervous as I am about what they are giving their dogs? The FDA or someone needs to get it together and plan preventative strategies. I've seen these in stores and thank goodness I never purchased them!

Lots of this stuff is produced in China, where there's almost no oversight of the process. Salmonella? Sure, toss some in. But even in the U.S. you don't want to know what goes into these products. It ain't nice plump chicken breasts.

good article. It is articles like this that make zootoo a valuable site. We have had some chicken jerky donated to the shelter. I will make sure we throw it away. Personally I have started making my own dog treats. Liver and pumkin...

Dog treats are something I keep in the car so that I can "Make friends" with passing pouches. I would hate to think that my effort to be nice got any of them sick

I guess I have been fortunate because I have given my dogs chicken jerkey treats for several years, it is their favorite treat. They have never become ill from them, even when they "find" the container and pry off the lid for a stolen treat.

They need to figure out what was wrong with the treats and make it more publisized so dog owners know.

Good to read I have some in the cupboard. I'll go home and through them out. I got the chicken because there is so much dye in the beef and some others. I vote for dye free pet products, they don't need it.

I promise people and dogs can't eat anything anymore. Kids can't play with toys what is happening. Are we just getting worse about what we are dealing with or is it truely bad for us.
