An Ohio, USA, woman launched a petition campaign on Change.org calling for the recall of Nestle Purina's Waggin' Train dog treats, claiming her Fox Terrier died after consuming the chicken jerky treats made in China.
Terry Safranek's campaign on Change.org was launched after a Food and Drug Administration representative picked up a sample of the treats from her house for its ongoing investigation. So far, more than 600 cases of sickness and death in dogs linked to the chicken jerky treats have been reported to the administration.
Safranek said: “Waggin' Train Wholesome Chicken Jerky treats were the last thing Sampson ate before he fell ill. I've since learned we're part of a known epidemic of hundreds of cases of illness and death attributed to these and other chicken jerky treats made in China. Nestle Purina needs to protect other families from what I went through by taking these treats off the shelves until they're proven safe.
“Nestle Purina has refused all accountability, instead placing blame on people like me who have lost their companions. If Nestle’s treats are safe, as they repeatedly claim, death and illness would never have been the end result for so many,” she said.
