Despite testing hundreds of samples and inspecting facilities in China, investigators still can't identify the source of the problem.

This is so sad and very upsetting. People buy treats for their dogs and they end up dead. What the hell is going on here?

When one of my Shepherds developed a severe food allergy I began making my own sweet potato treats for all my boys ~ who became ADDICTS. Since this recall began, I'm VERY glad I did!

Get our foods out of China for our animals. This isn't the first time animals have died from food coming out of that Country.

Here is the link to the FDA website about this subject. I think I'll start making my own puppy treats.

China does not take care of the food that it produces for animal consumption for export, let alone a lot of the food that is for their own human consumption as standards are far too lax. Best not to import foods from China in the first place. Often even the pet food industry in western countries often manufactures food of a questionable and very poor quality for pets as well, leading to long term health problems over the years.

I read a petition and it claims that Walmart is still selling this jerky product, so please be careful what you by.

The economic world is in the hand of China, think about it, they do want they want and nobody seems that is able to stop them, I hate this country, they don't respect humans, they don't respect the animals and the nature!!!!!!!
