FDA Testing Dog Treats That Wal-Mart Pulled Off Store Shelves

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Food and Drug Administration says it hasn't found any chemical or biological contamination in Chinese-made dog treats that were recently pulled off the shelves at Wal-Mart.

Earlier this week, Wal-Mart said it stopped selling Chicken Jerky Strips and Chicken Jerky in July after customers said the products made their pets sick.

Wal-Mart says 17 tests showed trace levels of melamine, the same pesticide byproduct that led to a widespread pet food recall in March after an unknown number of dogs and cats died.

An FDA spokeswoman says the agency is "actively" investigating Wal-Mart's products in light of the store's pulling the items from its shelves.

Tests are continuing.
