Petco Stops Selling Jerky Treats from China

Posted: Updated:
Petco says it will stop selling dog and cat treats made in China. The move is spurred by concerns that they're making pets sick.

The FDA issued a new health warning about jerky pet treats imported from that country Tuesday. The agency reports some 1,800 new cases of pet illnesses since the last warning in October.

The organization says the majority of the jerky treats were from China -- with flavors that include chicken, duck and sweet potato.

In all, the agency reports a total of about 4,800 complaints and 1,000 dog deaths. 

The FDA says it's continuing its investigation to find out what exactly is causing the illnesses.
