Wal-Mart Pulls 2 Kinds Of Dog Treats From Shelves

It could be another blow to Chinese imports.

Wal-Mart quietly stopped selling two brands of dog treats after customers complained the treats sickened their dogs, but it hasn't announced a recall.

A company spokeswoman says the treats are being tested.

The world's largest retailer started pulling two types of chicken jerky from two different Chinese importers in late July. It also placed a computerized block on all cash registers to prevent workers from selling the products.

Wal-Mart's action follows a massive pet food recall in March, when retailers began pulling products made in China that included the chemical melamine, a byproduct of several pesticides.

Philadelphia television station WPVI reports that a woman claims her 2-year-old Chihuahua died after eating the dog treats. An autopsy revealed that the dog died of an infection caused by toxic bacteria.

    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 (she was drinking lots of water) 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 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?
