FDA Alert About Jerky Pet Treats

There’s a new federal health alert for dog owners.

Several brands of the jerky treats were voluntarily removed from store shelves back in January.

Now, the Food and Drug Administration is asking pet owners and veterinarians to contact them if their pet has become ill after eating jerky pet treats.

At least 3,600 dogs have been sickened since 2007 and 580 of those pets died.

If your pet has become ill after eating these treats, you can contact the FDA by calling their Consumer Complaint number: 877-689-8073 (toll-free)
