I hate to say I told you so, but... Remember our decision to stop carrying all chicken jerky treats made in China? Even way back in September we knew something wasn't right - dogs across the US were getting sick. We decided it was better to be safe than sorry. Since then the FDA has launched an investigation into the problem, and yesterday was the first official recall.
To be clear, this recall is due to unapproved antibiotics contaminating the treats, and according to Purina and Del Monte, the recall has no link to the ongoing FDA investigation and has no effect on dogs' health. We're not sure how much of that we believe, but in our opinion, this is a step in the right direction, regardless of WHY the recall happened.
Just another reminder to stay away from anything made in China when choosing healthy treats for your dog!
