Chicken Jerkey Caution

I just heard a report on the news tonight about a dog that died from Bestro's Chicken Jerky. The owner said that the dog died of a bacterial infection caused by the Chicken Jerky. They have apparently removed it from the shelves at Walmart. They mentioned to be careful of any chicken jerky made in china. I give Brady Waggintrain chicken jerky tenders so I did a search for them online and was really upset with what a found. It seems a lot of dogs have gotten sick or died from Waggintrain as well. Waggintrain is also made in China. Well, the Waggintrain went in the trash tonight and I went out on a search for Chicken Jerky made in the USA. Trader Joe's are made in China as well as any I found at Petsmart. It looks like I will be cutting them out of Brady's diet until we can find some made in the USA. Please let me know if anyone knows of any and be cautious if you are using any made in China. Brady's stomach has been really shaky lately and I am wondering if this could have been the problem.

Hi Karne,
Hope that Brady's tummy troubles are not due to the jerkey. I am so nervous about all the stuff coming out of China. One can never be sure what would be the next item that will creat health hazards!


Best, Poornima

Thanks, Karen. It is getting so I am completely paranoid about trying anything new food-wise for Biscuit, because of all this contamination/recalls. I am sticking to kibble, fresh chicken, and his usual treats (Charlie Bears). Boring for him!

and HEATH-Y, TOO !

This is terrifying. How do you know what's safe?

Thanks for he warning. I will steer away from that product if it makes it's way over here. I am pretty weary of things made in China to be honest with you. I would actually prefer to use the items made in the U.S. or Canada but then again I would imagine you could get tainted items everywhere hence the recent pet food recall.

Shadow had been eating Bestro's Chicken Jerky. I wonder if it had anything to do with what happened to her.
