Chicken Jerky Treats May Pose Danger To Dogs

There is a government warning out for a popular kind of dog treat. They’re chicken jerky products, variously described as chicken tenders, strips, or just plain treats.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which regulates human and pet food, has received more than 70 complaints involving nearly 100 dogs that have become severely ill after eating chicken jerky products. Most recovered, but some died. However, in its warning to dog owners, the agency says, "to date, FDA has not been able to determine a definitive cause for the reported illnesses." And the illnesses haven't been traced to any particular brand or manufacturer, either.
