“Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

Our 9 yr old, very healthy, JRT/poodle mix died April 2011 from kidney failure. Vet said she had Fanconi Syndrome, extreamly rare for this dog type. When I Googled the disease, Chicken Jerky Treats came up everywhere. Clio loved her Kingdon Pets chicken jerky treats of which we only gave her maybe 2/wk. I’ve contacted Costco and Kingdon Pets, but they keep selling them. I registered a complaint with the FDA, but have heard nothering (no surprise as it is the govt.). I’ll continue to shout out this message to everyone. I now NEVER buy ANYTHING for my pets that are not Made in the USA.

What if something Made in the USA sources materials or ingredients from China or a dangerous or unreliable source???

Made in the USA does not mean safe!

Yes, you are correct. Bottom line: The FDA – our own government – does not do it’s job!
