PITTSBURGH, Pa. (WPXI) -- Dog treats linked to hundreds of animal deaths and thousands of illnesses are returning to store shelves soon, according to our sister station WPXI in Pittsburgh.
Last year, a nationwide recall was issued. The Food and Drug Administration said all animal owners should avoid jerky pet treats.
Despite having no firm evidence of what caused the deaths and sicknesses, Waggin Train and Milo's Kitchen brand treats will be sold again, according to WPXI.
Nestle Purina Pet Care officials say they'll reintroduce a line of Waggin' Train treats for dogs starting next month, including products made from a single supplier in China and new products sourced entirely in the United States.
Del Monte Foods Corp. officials said they'll resume selling Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky Strips and Chicken Grillers Recipe treats in March using U.S.-sourced meat, according to WPXI.
