WalMart | Melamine in Dog Treats

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AP) August 21, 2007 — Tests of two Chinese brands of dog treats sold at WalMart stores found traces of melamine, a chemical agent that led to another massive pet food recall in March, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Wal-Mart has removed chicken jerky products made by Pingyang Pet Product Co. and Shanghai Bestro Trading.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. quietly stopped selling Chicken Jerky Strips from Import-Pingyang Pet Product Co. and Chicken Jerky from Shanghai Bestro Trading in July, after customers said the products sickened their pets.

    Our pet Rosie, a 3 year old Chihuahua was poisoned from Chinese made Bestro’s Jerky Chicken Strips #77849 00006 1 We have this contaminated bag. We have three Chihuahuas and one of them died one month ago. She started with vomiting and dehydration and then we were told she may either have an obstruction or have been poisioned. Since our dogs are inside dogs and we are with them at all times outside we thought it was an obstruction. Finally the doctor
    said he was almost positive it was some kind of poisoning at Elwood Animal Clinic in Glendora, California. They were going to scope her but before that
    could happen she died July 21, at VCA in Fountain Valley, California. We gave our dogs Waggin train and Bestro’s Jerky Chicken Strips. Our Sweet Rosie (our chihuahua that passed) loved them and and she would eat all the treats we put down for the other dogs too. Up until today we never had any idea what happened but now with Wal Mart pulling this quietly from their selves. (I brought my treats at Wal Mart, Glendora, California) I truly believe that is why she died. We called Wal Mart and are getting a run around. We need help. We are totally heartbroken and will never forget Our Sweet Gypsy Rose!
    Since Wal Mart had this problem before, why didn’t they pull all that Chinese junk off the first time? Our Rosie will still be alive! Is Wal Mart concerned about people and their Pets or Money? You figured it out.

    It’s easy for us to make healthy treats right at home. We don’t need to rely on other countries, or manufacturers at all. This is so unnecessary.

    On Auguest 14th, My dog Sugar was only a 5yrs old Yorkie and she eat the chichen strips to and died of kidney failure also plus am infection not know to the vet. It was so hard to see her vomiting and her poop was also green and yellow and then to blood. She lived only a little over a week after I took her to the vets, They try everything to help her but we ended up putting her to sleep. I did call Wal Mart and I was told they will put me on a list and that was it. Wal Mart know about this 30 days before the pulled it off the shelfs. I purchased them only Just 24th and they pull it July 27th. But I am not going to let it sit. I have the receipt that show I purchased the deadly chicken stripes. UPC(0087784900006) Recieved letter today 9/7/07 from Wal-Mart telling me that I have to go after the supplyer not them. Just passing the blame. Sugar is a part of family. She didn’t ask for this!!!! Can any one HELP. Wal Mart needs to step up and take the blame to.

    I am trying to reach Dolores Cole. I have a 2 year old Yorkie that ate the same chicken jerky treats and is still very sick. I’m so sorry for your loss. I don’t know what we will do if our baby doesn’t make it. I have 2 other dogs that were sickened but they are bigger and have since recovered. I would also like to file a law suit. My vet bills are approaching $3,000. My vet keeps wanting to do more tests – the latest being the scope. I don’t know where to turn. I’d love to hear from you.
