Why is Waggin' Train re-launching chicken jerky dog treats after voluntarily withdrawing them from the market?

We’ve heard from thousands of consumers who want Waggin’ Train chicken jerky dog treats for their dogs. We’ve worked very hard over the past year to strengthen our already strict quality control measures to ensure Waggin’ Train treats meet Purina’s high standards. As we said back in January 2013, we planned to re-introduce products once we determined the best way to address the regulatory inconsistencies between countries that led to the voluntary withdrawal.

And now, we’ve introduced 5 new, high quality real meat treats.

What is the FDA saying about chicken jerky treats made in China?

Over the past several years, FDA has issued several communications about chicken jerky dog treats, including results of extensive testing on chicken jerky treats made in China. Their investigation is in response to reports by some pet owners who believe their pets became ill or died after consuming jerky dog treats. FDA has consistently stated, “To date, testing for contaminants in jerky pet treats has not revealed a cause for the illnesses.” The FDA notice also includes a reminder that dog treats should be fed as treats, not as a pet’s sole source of nutrition. Waggin’ Train continues to work with FDA and supports the agency’s efforts to help ensure the quality and safety of U.S. pet products.
