Pet owners ask retailers to pull dog treats
October 23, 2012
Pacific Northwest dog owners joined a petition on Change.org to call on Issaquah-based Costco, Target, Safeway and other retailers to remove jerky-style dog treats from shelves as the federal Food and Drug Administration investigates the treats.
The petition is available at www.change.org/dangerousdogtreats.
Petitioners said the FDA has received reports of more than 2,200 cases of pet illness, including 361 deaths, linked to chicken jerky dog treats made in China.
