Important Information About Jerky Treats
We, at family owned Centinela Feed, are also pet owners so we understand how you feel when you are unsure about a product you are giving your pet.
Since 2007, the FDA has become aware of an increasing number of illnesses in pets associated with the consumption of jerky pet treats and has advised consumers to be judicious when purchasing jerky products made in China. Despite ongoing testing, the FDA has been unable to identify a definitive cause of the reported dog illnesses and has been unable to establish a direct link between the reported illnesses and China-sourced jerky products.
It is important to note that neither the FDA nor our suppliers have recommended any recalls of the jerky products carried in Centinela Feed & Pet Supplies stores. Although we feel comfortable with the jerky products we carry, we understand your concerns, and as an alternative, we have expanded our line of USA-made treats.
For more information, please read the FDA’s Questions and Answers Regarding Jerky Pet Treats . Feel free to come in and talk to our knowledgable associates and they will make a recommendation to insure the health and happiness of your pet.
The FDA has distributed a warning letter to companies that produce tear-stain removing products. These companies that have been warned, use ingredients that have not been reviewed by the FDA: “These tear stain removers … contain the medically important antibiotic tylosin tartrate, which is not approved for use in dogs or cats, nor for the treatment of conditions associated with tear stains”. Products produced by these companies include: Angels’ Eyes, Angels’ Glow, Pets’ Spark, and exported products Glow Groom and Health Glow.
