Several years ago, when there was the major pet food recall, it was due to a contaminent in foods made in China. That usually begs the question of why we are still buying food that is made in China, if there is the constant risk of contamination. So when I came across a recent article regarding Pet Owners waging a campaign against Chinese Pet Food I wasn't surprised.
Pet owners are waging a campaign against Chinese-made pet treats they believe to be deadly.
Phyllis Darnell said her schnauzer, Kara, spent a year in pain while eating Waggin’ Train treats.
Kara eventually died of pancreatitis and hepatitis.
Owners Keith Roloson and Linda Thomas said their dog Baby suffered periodic severe vomiting and lethargy. Each time, she'd eaten the same Waggin’ Train jerky treat. Their other dog, Coco, ate the treats too.
They are part of a growing social media groundswell demanding a recall of Chinese chicken jerky dog treats. The primary brands being targeted are Waggin’ Train and Milo’s Kitchen.
An online petition has close to 70,000 signatures, and a Facebook page dedicated to the cause has more than 6,000 members.
