Chinese Dog Treats in the news, again

I am very protective of my dog, so the story about dog treats is scary.

When buying dog treats, unfortunately, I feel I need to check where the item was made. I bought some dog treats a while ago at Target, and I was surprised they were made in China. I am glad I returned them, soon as my dear wife, noticed where they were made. I remember the stories from a couple of years ago, 2008, about the contaminated dog food due to ingredients from China, that killed a number of dogs. I wrote some blog posts on it. I am surprised that 7 years later, this is still an issue.

What are the products involved?
The majority of complaints involve chicken jerky (treats, tenders, and strips), but others include duck, sweet potato, and treats where chicken or duck jerky is wrapped around dried fruits, sweet potatoes, or yams.
