LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. quietly stopped selling two brands of dog treats in July, after customers voiced concerns that the Chinese products may have caused their pets to fall ill, but no recall has been announced, a company spokeswoman confirmed.
The world's largest retailer started pulling Chicken Jerky Strips from Import-Pingyang Pet Product Co. and Chicken Jerky from Shanghai Bestro Trading on July 26, spokeswoman Deisha Galberth said late Monday.
They anounced a voluntary recall today. From what I heard there has only been one death, and has not been confirmed that it was from this product. The toy dog in question, died from a baterial infection. Which as a dog owner, I know it could have come from anywhere. Gingavisis can cause a baterial infection that dogs can die from.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
This was in one of our local papers about a week ago. The woman in question has (had) three dogs. For some (strange) reason, the dog that died was the only dog they gave those particular treats to (I think it had something to do with the other dogs having a food allergy.) Last I heard, they were waiting for autopsy results. WalMart had been contacted and wouldn't respond until her Vet (and the media) got involved, thus the recall.
