Swiss-based giant Nestle Purina needs to do the right thing and keep their jerky treats made in China OFF THE SHELVES and keep our Morkies SAFE!
Despite a $6.5 million settlement, Nestle Purina has done nothing wrong! Oh and there is a “recommendation” (well hidden) that tells consumers, not for dogs under 5 pounds. That’s not enough. These products should not be on shelves period.
Here are the facts:
- to date more than 2,200 cases of illness and death are attributed to chicken jerky treats made in China
- as early as 2007, the FDA (the U.S. federal Food and Drug Administration) had issued a warning about a possible relationship between dog illnesses and chicken jerky products made in China
- the company voluntarily withdrew all Waggin’ Train and Canyon Ranch brand dog treats in the U.S. on Jan. 9, 2013
- they settled a class action suit brought by consumers who’ve lost their furry companions to Purina’s treats (read details at NBC News) in June of this year
- now they’re back!! Nestle Purina re-introduced the product in February of this year – here’s their fabulous corporate double-speak on how it’s ok now —
Really Bill, really? The same factory, the same supplier, the same issues that even the FDA can’t shut down.
Why? In a word, GREED
Even though they own 28% of the U.S. pet food market alone (that’s over $4,000,000,000 a year in sales) plus massive share of markets around the world — Nestle Purina continues to buy and re-sell jerky treats made in China. It’s disgusting – but it’s up to us to KICK IT OFF THE SHELVES by not buying it or any other jerky treats! Please people, it’s just not worth the risk.
