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.
