Dog Treats Made in USA

China has become notorious for importing goods resulting in recalls. Recent headlines drew attention to an issue with dog treats made in China causing illness in American pets. In a report released in May, the FDA announced 4,800 cases of illness related to the consumption of jerky dog treats made in China. Sadly, 1,000 dogs affected died of kidney failure caused by the treats. The culprit has been identified as amantadine, a human antiviral drug that is toxic to dogs.

Although the recent news has brought renewed attention to the risks of dog treats made in China, the FDA has actually been releasing warnings of their dangers since 2007. In response to the latest recall, PetCo and PetsMart have both announced that they will be eliminating the sale of any pet treats made in China. The toxic treats remain on the shelves of major drug and grocery stores, however.
