According to a press release from the FDA over 3,000 dogs got ill and 580 of those died after eating jerky treats manufactured in China.  However many of those brands where removed from store shelves in January 2013.  But Carrie Underwood, who is an avid puppy lover, posted a tweet today warning dog owners to be ware.

But before you think Carrie is over reacting, the FDA did say to check with your veternarian before giving your dog or cat any jerky treats.  The agency also said jerky treats are not an essential part of your dog's or cat's diet.
