Dr. Erick Mears at BluePearl Veterinary Partners says jerky treats should be safe to eat, but pet owners should exercise caution and not use treats as a meal substitute.

In a couple of weeks, Two of the nation's top-selling brands of pet treats will be back in business stocking store shelves with jerky treats.

Nestle Purina Pet Care and Del Monte Foods Corp. recalled their respective brands of jerky treats about a year ago after hundreds of dogs and some cats got ill and some died after eating jerky treats.

Purina will reintroduce a line of Waggin'Train treats next month and Del Monte Foods will make Its Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky Strips and Chicken Grillers available to the public.

This after the FDA couldn't determine the treats were the main cause of death of animals and the FDA says these companies don't need special pre-market approval to reintroduce the treats because they are only selling what they got approval for in the first place.
