In February 2015 the Chinese Government issued a statement complaining about US pet store chains removing Chinese sourced jerky treats stating “there is no direct evidence of a correlation between the pet snacks manufactured in China and the disease and death of pets in USA”.
In 2015 Purina Waggin’ Train jerky treats settled a class action lawsuit – admitting no wrong doing – for a mere $6.5 million dollars.
The end of 2015 marks the end of 8 full years of FDA investigation into Chinese imported jerky treats.

In 2015 they learned of an FDA Warning Letter to Purina Pet Food canning plant. The FDA inspection found that this Purina plant deviated from the required processing of the pet food.
