The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued another caution about tainted petfood from China, according to an  article from The Eagle Tribune .

No specific brands are being recalled at this time, but the government is letting pet owners know imported dog treats made with chicken jerky are suspected of making pets sick.

So far, the investigators have not found the ingredient causing contamination. The cause of illnesses may ultimately be identified as something other than chicken jerky from China, according to the FDA announcement.

The  FDA advises dog owners to watch their pets carefully if they feed them chicken jerky treats, and call a veterinarian if symptoms, including loss of appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, diarrhea, thirst or increased urination, persist 24 hours.
