This time the FDA is asking for help from consumers and Vets to make reports if their pet gets sick from eating jerky treats: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm371413.htm
They've also expanded their concern from just Chicken Jerky treats to include Duck, Sweet Potato and/or Dried Fruit.
If you suspect your dog is sick from eating a jerky treat, see your Vet and bring the package & sample of the treat if you can. The FDA may request your permission for additional tests (which they will pay for). According to the article (above link).
The more information they have, the sooner the cause of these illnesses and deaths can be found.
Personally, I quit feeding my dogs jerky treats and try to buy only US/Canadian sourced chews (not always easy, as manufacturers are not required to provide this information).
