Consumer Bits on Brusimm 200w logo, [Consumer News, advice and reviews]My local news station has been teasing viewers all weekend about an article on dogs getting poisoned by a pet treat. The teaser also suggests the dog treat maker has known abut this public concern since 2007.

I thought I’d do some quick research on this bad bit of info to find out what it’s about.

The dog brand allegedly tainted is Nestle Purina‘s snacks called Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky dog treats.

According to multiple source links, Nestle Purina has been made aware of these concerns that their snacks have had issues, since 2007 from the FDA. And again in 2008, the FDA issued a second warning.

To date, the number of animals that could be affected tally close to 1000.

I have to say, if Purina has known about this since 2007 and they are producing questionable dog food products and have not done anything… well, I can’t tell you what to do, but I can choose to speak with how I use my wallet.
