The difference between humans and pets.......... please take the time to read this article from Susan Thixton, the Pet Food Safety Advocate. This is unconscionable and not to be tolerated!
In 2009, the FDA issued a warning to consumers about Zicam Intranasal, a human product. The FDA warning stated they received "more than 130 reports" of loss of sense of smell associated with the product. Retailers, out of concern for consumers, removed the Zicam product from store shelves. The manufacturer voluntarily recalled the product. But with dog treats?...Two years later (November 2011), the FDA issues its third warning about a dog treat that was linked to serious illness and death. The FDA told Senator Sherrod Brown (Ohio) more than 600 events of pet illness or death has been reported since November 2011. Not one national retailer has removed the dog treat from store shelves. Not one jerky treat manufacturer/importer has voluntarily recalled the treats.
