FDA: ‘Jerky Treats’ Responsible for Nearly 600 Dogs’ Deaths

The Food and Drug Administration is warning dog owners about feeding ‘Jerky Treats’ dog snacks to their pets. An illness related to the treats has left nearly 600 dogs dead, and is responsible for sickening over 3,000 others.

Symptoms include decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased activity, increased water consumption, and increased urination, according to a statement from the FDA. Pet owners observing such symptoms should contact a veterinarian.

Bernadette Dunham, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, said they are unsure about the exact cause.

“This is one of the most elusive and mysterious outbreaks we’ve encountered. Our beloved four-legged companions deserve our best effort, and we are giving it.”

These brands have been linked to the outbreak:

  • Nestle Purina Waggin’ Train
  • Canyon Creek Ranch Treats
  • Del Monte Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers
