If you feed your pet a jerky treat and it gets sick or dies, the Food and Drug Administration wants to hear from you.
The agency says it has reports of more than 3,600 dogs and 10 cats that got sick after eating jerky pet treats over the past six years and 580 of those pets have died.
The FDA isn’t naming any particular brand, but says the animals mostly ate a chicken or duck jerky treat or a jerky-wrapped treat. The FDA has already tested 1,200 samples without discovering the exact cause of any illnesses.
Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, a lack of appetite and sluggishness.
“Most of the jerky treats implicated have been made in China,” the FDA said on its website.
