    MY DOG BAILEY RECEIVED SIX BAGS OF THE MILO’S KITCHEN CHICKEN JERKY TREATS AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM MY SISTER. ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER EATING SOME OF THEM, HE VOMITED. WE CHECKED THE BAGS. SOME SAID MADE IN USA AND OTHERS SAID MADE IN CHINA. WE TOSSED ALL 6 OF THE BAGS. BAILEY DOESN’T SEEM TO HAVE ANY RESIDUAL EFFECTS. I THINK THAT HE WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE VOMITED UP THE TREATS.

      Imported Dehydrated Chicken strips aka chicken jerky treats have been reported as a problem since 2007. These treats which are now poisoning (and killing) pets have been in the media for the last TWO years. Why owners are still oblivious is partly the Retailers fault. But is also why this product is still in the marketplace. Sorry this is harsh. But I think that the pet was fortunate to have survived at all, given the carelessness and ignorance involved. Six bags … really?? All pet owners have a responsibility to understand exactly WHAT their pet is eating. It’s called the Internet. And there’s no longer any excuse.

    As a resident of the State of NY, I want to commend and thank the Ag department for their tenacity in finding the trace amounts of banned, in this country, antibiotics. Many pet deaths and sickness have been attributed to these jerky treats.

    Way back when in 2007 it was the NY Ag who discovered cyanuric acid, melamine, and various other chemicals in cat and dog food. These too caused many deaths and serious illness in our beloved cats and dogs.

    Hold onto you hats folks……..this list will be huge.

    And again many thanks to Susan and her never ending efforts to keep us all safe
    God Bless!!

    Did these treats come from China or the U.S.?

    1. Susan Thixton Author

      The product is sourced from China.

      It doesn’t matter. Trust (or the declaration of truth) is conditional and relative. Why would ANYONE not recognize the deception of a conglomorate like Nestle Purina? Whether or not they import a product or just fail to educate the public regarding other equally damaging pet food issues – they can not be trusted. This is the perfect example to PROVE it. And that’s exactly what it came to, what the companies have been gambling against while they make money.

      Proof.

      These companies hide behind technicalities. Now that the NYDOA has forced the hand, it’s also forced the hand of the FDA. Well, well. So companies are trying to manage damage control. In the meantime everybody’s attention will shift to blaming China instead holding accountable the responsibile distributors and the companies which have known all along! No entity worth billions of dollars (like Nestle Purina) does legal business amounting to millions of dollars of profit, with an Importer for nearly 5 yrs, without understanding the full ramifications of their risk and exposure!

      Does it mean nothing that nearly 1 dog a day has DIED because of this issue? Or shouldn’t these companies be punished by withdrawing your business, once and for all!!!!

        Well stated ‘curious reader’. You are spot on!

    It is well past time that this product was off the market (albeit, temporarily and under conditions. In our market, they have been heavily advertised on TV, ans if the public was and was to be totally unaware of the overarching situation.

    HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! Great news. Will go to my local stores tomorrow and hope to see none!

    As of 6 pm CA time, all the Waggin’ Train treats have been removed from Safeway shelves. Don’t know whether this is a coincidence or not, but I always check the shelves when I go in to shop, and they are always stocked. I, of course, “rearrange” them so they are not visible to the avarage customer, doing my bit to save a dog. Dogswell and Milo were still there… so we’ll see. HOORAY !

    1. Barbara

      Was in Safeway again yesterday Jan 11, and the shelves were RESTOCKED with Waggin’ Train. If they are not pulled by Monday afternoon, a little ol’ lady is going to pull them… as well as any other brand of “treat” recalled.

    The chicken jerky and the chicken grillers that are being recalled are made at their facility in China. All the rest of their products are made in the USA….according to their website.

    Maybe now the stores can replace these treats with more quality and safe dog treats…..like whole life pet treats, or beams from the honest kitchen if you want a safe edible chew…..pet parents should at least know about the good treats and safe chews there are out there.

    Why feed dog treats at all…I us cereal bits, tiny pretzles, veggie chips, Goldfish and other healthy human snacks….dogs love them

    1. Heidi

      Those are not necessarily healthy human snacks, much less for dogs. 🙁

    My mother bought my dog some chincken breast treats that were made in China. I took them back to the pet store and exchaged them. I felt bad knowing someone’s pet would eat them, but they were on the shelf. Plato’s treats claim to be organic.

  11. Heidi

    Props to you, Susan, for all your hard work in getting this issue out there, and dealt with. I think the dog world owes you a huge debt of gratitude.

    1. Susan Thixton Author

      Thanks Heidi – but this win (if it can be called that) is all of ours. So many people have worked to keep the jerky treat issues alive – I’m just one of many.

  12. Johannah

    Do not buy ANY chicken products not from the USA!!! A good brand that is made in the US and human grade quality FULL MOON, my boy Pippin loves them, and he has never had any issues!

    I don’t feed my Border Collie or Maine Coon Cat any processed treats. I use rotisserie, grilled, boiled or baked chicken. I also bake sweet potatoes and make treats with them. My Border Collie also likes green beans right out of the can. It takes a little extra work, but is well worth it.

    When will these companys learn to start making products in the U.S. It gets old hearing about all these idiots getting rich by having China keep making all these substandard products. All you can hope for is all the people affected by this takes them to court and puts them out of business. Its only ashame you could not take all their(CEO’s) money and send them to the poor house too or force them to eat this crap!

    why are some of milo’s kitchen products made in china and others, like the meatballs, made in the USA? i don’t understand…. shouldn’t milo’s kitchen be ALL made in the USA???
    i used to give the jerky and grillers but….. some of my ‘kids’ get upset stomachs from them…. then the vet told me to stop the MADE IN CHINA treats….
    sad.

    My husband purchased Chicken Meatballs and in the list of ingredients is shows Garlc Powder. Garlic if any kind is so hazardous to animals .
