FDA Said No Chemical Contamination for Dog Treats

The Food and Drug administration said it hasn’t found any chemical or biological contamination in Chinese-made dog treats that were recently pulled off the shelves at Wal-Mart.

Earlier this week Wal-Mart said it stopped selling chicken jerky strips and chicken jerky in July after customers said the products made their pets sick.

Wal-Mart said 17 tests showed trace levels of melamine, the same pesticide byproduct that led to a widespread pet food recall in March after an unknown number of dogs and cats died.

An FDA spokeswoman said the agency is “actively” investigating Wal-Mart’s products in light of the store’s pulling the items from its shelves.
