Dog jerky treats linked to deaths back on store shelves

Updated:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Some dog treats at the center of a deadly tainted food investigation are back on store shelves.

Several types of jerky treats pulled from store shelves more than a year ago are once again for sale in major stores.

For example, Purina sells one variety of Waggin’ Train treats still made in China.

Purina said the chicken used is from one supplier in China.

“Bringing them back one thing, letting them still be made in China, absolutely I’m infuriated,” said dog owner Sheri Brodie.

The Federal Drug Administration has not found a direct link between reported illnesses and the Chinese-made treats.

The agency is working to identify any possible toxins that may have resulted in hundreds of dogs dying.

Purina also said it has added new quality control measures.
