FDA issues new warning about toxic treats after 1,000 dog deaths

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is issuing an update on an investigation in jerky pet treats linked to the deaths and illnesses of thousands of pets. As of May 1, 2014 the FDA has received in total more than 4,800 complaints of illness and 1,000 dogs have died in connection to eating jerky treats, nearly all of which were imported from China.
Some samples of jerky pet treats made in China tested positive for the presence of an antiviral drug amantadine, but  the FDA does not believe that amantadine contributed to the illnesses.

If your pet has experienced signs of illness that you suspect is related to jerky pet treats, please report it to FDA.
