The Chinese government issued a statement that US consumers are “misguided by groundless suspicions” about jerky treats sourced from China. 1,000 dead pets is not groundless suspicion.
A public statement from “the Pet Food Articles Inspection and Quarantine Branch of China Entry and Exit Inspection and Quarantine Association” complained that US pet store chains removed the Chinese sourced jerky treats from store shelves. They stated: “there is no direct evidence of a correlation between the pet snacks manufactured in China and the disease and death of pets in USA”.
“De-shelving with no reason will result in trade losses of the importers/exporters of the two countries and cause a misunderstanding by US consumers about pet snacks manufactured in China,”
“We wish the US retailers to treat pet snacks manufactured in China objectively and fairly, and US consumers not be misguided by groundless suspicions.”
U.S. consumers were NOT misguided by groundless suspicions. Jerky treats sourced from China have been directly linked to more than 1,000 deaths of beautiful, loved family pets. Thousands more still suffer from kidney disease directly linked to Chinese sourced jerky treats.
There is a valid reason why U.S. pet food/treat consumers want to avoid any pet product sourced from China. While China might not remember the 2007 pet food recall – where thousands of U.S. dogs and cats died and thousands more survived but suffered permanent kidney damage — we vividly remember. We vividly remember the thousands of pet deaths and illnesses linked to Chinese sourced jerky treats.
China – you’ve made your bed, deal with it. Don’t tell us we are misguided when we’ve watched thousands and thousands of our pets die linked to a imported from China product. You might quickly forget, we won’t.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
