More dogs sick from chicken treats.

Amid reports of more than 500 dogs sickened by chicken jerky pet treats imported from China, government health officials are ramping up port inspections for dangerous toxins.

I won't ever buy any dog food or snacks made in China. It standards to reason that if their standards aren't safe for people, then there are no standards for animal food production. I look only for food and treats made in the US and Canada. I even look for toys made in the US but there are very few.

Considering they made plastic rice, of all things . . .i wouldn't feed my Isabella ANYTHING from China. Jerky is so simple to make, and is long lasting.

To be honest, I am surprised ANYONE still buys them? I see them on the shelves when I go to Target or the grocery store and always scratch my head in disbelief that they are even on the shelf

So sad. Maybe this time people will really heed the warning and Stop buying treats and food from China.

I always check the label on the treats and if they are made in China they go back on the shelf. I couldn't find a toy the other day that wasn't made in China, though!

We don't buy any food items made in China, not for dogs and certainly not for humans.
