Thread: Contaminated Chicken Treats from China

  1. #1

    Default Contaminated Chicken Treats from China

    Crossposting from the DDF:

    "Last week, an Australian company withdrew chicken jerky dog treats from the market due to a link with dog illnesses. The treats were made in China.

    Today, FDA issued a similar warning about chicken jerky dog treats in general.

    Please share the following with any doggy families that you know. Neither the US nor the Australian investigators can figure out what is in these treats that is causing dogs to become ill.

    If this is happening in the US and Australia, then it's also happening in other countries where China-manufactured chicken jerky dog treats are sold.

    Yes this is very disturbing for all.

    I have never bought the brand of treats suspected, but am now only buying treats owned and made in Australia with Australian product.

    I really feel for the owners of animals who have been affected.

    I know a lot of people who are now baking their own doggy treats, that way you know exactly what is in them. There are lots of recipies if you do a google search and it can be good fun.

    You may have a live audience in the kitchen though...patently waiting to taste test!

    Hello everyone, happy xmas! This is my first post on this forum. I was shocked to find out the treats at the centre of this problem where in fact the Kramar Chicken Breasts.

    I have fed these to my dog many times in the past. Does anyone know if the symptoms are immediate or can be delayed in there onset?

    Thanks everyone.

    Hello Zacs Dog,

    Symptoms can be delayed in onset over a period of weeks.

    Sydney University are investigating, and the AVA (Australian Vetinarary Ass) are aware of the issues. You could contact them if you are concerned or for specific symptoms, or your own vet, who will be familiar and well informed on any risks.

    I will never be buying these treats again, as IMO the company has done nothing to responsibly address the serious concerns of their customers apart from a 'voluntary" recall. Meanwhile families are paying thousands in vet bills.

    Good luck for you and your doggies, i am sure everything will be ok.
