Alert -Pet Treats


This morning there was an article in the Ft Worth Star Telegram about Waggin" Train Chicken Jerky Tenders, made by ADI Pets Inc, being dangerous for pets. It said it causes kidney problems and is sold at Walmart and Sam's Club.  This link has some info about this treat. Just wanted people to be alert to this.

Having just cked throughly on this Jerkey treat I found that it wasnt a pet alert treat.

The newspaper article mentioned (re-published in Nov2007) can be seen on the newspaper’s web site www.star-telegram.com where the issue was overfeeding, not contamination, albeit during the contamination alert times.

Consumers buying chicken jerky pet treats soon may notice something different on the package labels: suggestions on how many such snacks a day they can safely give to their dogs. Some manufacturers and retailers, responding to complaints that Chinese-made treats were making dogs sick, are developing feeding instructions tailored to an animal's weight, similar to what is required on pet foods designed to be a primary nutrition source. The move is based on anecdotal reports that...

The link in the OP is to an online forum, not the newspaper, which, like even this forum, might contain material which you should do your own due diligence on. Forums contain opinion and seldom provide scientific basis. Again, I am not making any assertions, just advancing pragmatism and prudence. Then again, that's just my opinion!
