Thumbs down Pet Treats Recalled in the Past, Headed Back Toward the Shelves!

Pet treats, particularly those made in China, which had been removed from the stores, are now headed back toward the shelves. I feed my pets only natural ingredient treats that are made in the USA.

Not surprisingly, the same brands of jerky pet treats that are suspected of causing illness and death in thousands of pets – brands finally pulled from the market a year ago – are headed back to store shelves.

Nestle Purina’s Waggin’ Train treats and Del Monte Corp’s Milo’s Kitchen products are either already on store shelves as you read this, or will be shortly. It is utterly unclear what has changed about the jerky treats that presumably makes them safe to sell again.

In other discouraging developments, the 85,000-member American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has taken a page from the FDA playbook and is refusing to take an official position against potentially tainted treats.

A Seattle veterinarian and clinical pathologist who has stated publicly he believes the treats are making pets sick, says the search for the problem is moving too slowly and there’s been very little progress in seven years.

Recommendations for avoiding toxic pet treats include buying only treats with ingredients that have been sourced in the U.S., offering fresh human foods as treats, and preparing treats at home for your pet.
