I’m sure you seen the latest article from NBC News circulating in the social media outlets that is reporting: “Nearly 600 pets have died and more than 3,600 have been sickened in an ongoing, mysterious outbreak of illnesses tied to jerky treats made in China”
Well we wanted to put your mind at “ease” and let you know that this is NOT new news. The news about these recalls, sicknesses and and deaths had actually broken in January 2013. This article was simply reporting that the deaths and sicknesses are caused by jerky but they’re not sure of the source still.
It has taken 10 months for the main stream media to report on such a serious issue that is happening in our pet food industry. That is 10 months of recalls that have gone unreported by local news.
With recalls happening almost every month and an estimated 57% of American households owning pets, this news should be making headlines each time a new recall occurs!
How Can You Keep Your Pets Safe?
- Throw away or return to the store all jerky that is currently in your home (whether it is made in the US or China).
- Do not buy jerky of any kind. If you must feed jerky, make it at home
