US – Nearly a reported 600 pet deaths have been linked to eating jerky pet treats since 2007. As reported by Vetstreet.com, since 2007, illnesses in 3,660 dogs and 10 cats have also been linked to the treats, but the Food and Drug Administration has yet to be able to determine the exact cause, even after conducting over 1,200 tests.
CVM Director Bernadette Dunham, DVM, Ph.D, is quoted in the report as stating, “This is one of the most elusive and mysterious outbreaks we’ve encountered.”
A significant percentage of the treats linked to pet illnesses were reportedly made in China. The FDA recommends that pet owners whose animals become sick after eating jerky treats contact their vet.
