According to an article on nbcnews.com, Petco has pulled Chinese-made dog and cat treats from its stores after concerns that the treats sickened thousands of pets since 2007.
"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says initial tests have not connected the Chinese jerky and rawhide treats to the illnesses, but the San Diego-based company and its rival PetSmart vowed in May to ban the snacks," the article states. "The FDA targeted the treats after receiving more than 4,800 complaints of pet illnesses, including the deaths, after pets ate chicken, duck or sweet potato jerky treats from China. Tests have not confirmed any connection, but the agency is still investigating."
Petco has 1,300 stores in the United States including one at 303 Route 35 North, Eatontown.
