Maybe we should go back to what we gave dogs for treats when I was a kid--cookies and other human tibits. They say they aren't good for them but at this rate maybe human scraps are as safe as the dog treats.

This is getting to be ridiculous. Pet food, greenies and now this? Just what are you able to feed your pet and not have to worry?

maybe we're supposed to stop feeding them. Maybe that's the point of all of these recalls.

Why can't they be a little more specific? I hate that you have to worry about what treats you give your pet.

Thanks for the warning-I won't but any. I think our food supply is rife with potential problems. Look at the human toll from e.coli 0158 and Jack in the Box. How can we better regulate all animal products?

There needs to be strict and enforced legislation on food standards for animals.

IT HAS GOTTEN TO THE POINT WHERE YOU DO NOT KNOW IF YOUR FOOD OR THE ANIMALS IS SAFE TO EAT. THERE SEEMS TO BE AN ENDLESS LIST OF WARNINGS!!

Nowadays you really can't be too careful. YOu buy treats for your pet and then they have a chance of getting seriously ill. Well, guess that they are like us humans and allhte recalls on all the meat products we've seen in the last few yeares

We need to stay away from food products made in China. Need to look at the labels more carefully nowadays. I have been staying away from any jerky products made for dogs. They really are not necessary. We should be staying with the basic dog biscuits made is USA for treats.

What a pity. You try to be good to your pet and give him treats and he gets sick from them. Isn't there any quality control? There should be.

The FDA issues a warning that produces more questions than it answers. Its time to get new blood in the FDA. Give specifics please. Until further updates, I will, myself, will cook the chicken my dog eats.

This article doesn't specify, but it appears that the source of the salmonella in the chickens is, once again, China. The chicken strips were the products of Eight In One or Menu and sold under the name Dingo, from what I could discover on the net. The threat of salmonella lies in the transmission to humans from handling the chicken strips or coming in contact with the dog's feces.

It is hard to know what to feed your dogs anymore. There are good treat recipes online. It may be the safest way to go.

Again, company's need a good quality control manager. Computer chips have a 1 in one-million fail rate because of good quality control. Those responsible for food for people and animals should be doing this as well.
