Deadly Dog Treat Mystery Unsolved: The
reason why nearly 2,000 U.S. dogs died after eating Chinese-made treats appears to be no closer after U.S.
officials came away empty-handed from the Chinese factories that make the treats, NBC.com reports.
investigators tried to gather samples from the factories to test, but Chinese government officials
insisted that the investigators agree to conditions like having the testing done in Chinese laboratories. Consequently, the FDA left without accomplishing what it set out to do.
The FDA late last year warned that
chicken jerky treats from the Chinese factories, which make Nestle Purina pet products, might be dangerous
and has since expanded the warning to duck and sweet potato jerky treats.
Nestle Purina denies its treats
have killed anyone's dogs.
