Petco to stop selling dog and cat treats made in China

Petco is getting rid of all dog and cat treats made in China.

The decision comes just days after the FDA issued a new warning that 1,000 dog deaths may be linked to jerky pet treats imported from China.

Petco says it will remove all China-made dog treats from its stores by the end of the year.

The FDA has not been able to pinpoint a direct link between the treats and pet illnesses, so a recall has not yet been issued.

But Petco says customers’ concerns are enough to pull them from the shelves.
