Petco

US based national pet retailer ‘PetCo’ has pulled off all Chinese-made dog and cat treats from the markets. Since their launch in 2007, thousands of dogs and cats have fallen ill while over 1000 dogs have lost their lives post the consumption of the treats. Other retailers, such as PetSmart, who have stocked up on the Chinese treats, plan to remove the stock from their shelves by March 2015.

According to the US Food & Drug Administration, the initial tests on the Chinese treats, such as Jerky and rawhide, have showcased no link to the illness. However, the FDA will now review the treats again as it has received more than 4800 complaints of illness and deaths after the pets consumed the jerky treats made by Chinese manufacturing companies. 

PetCo’s Vice President John Strum says that all treats now being sold are being made in the US or countries such as Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia and South America.
