Hey Gary:
With all this negative news on poison toys from China, Eric and I are wondering about dog toys from China. No one has said anything about them.

Dogs not only stick the toys in the mouths … they end up chewing on and swallowing pieces of the toys, etc.

Has anyone tested dog toys from China? (Paula & Eric, Pleasanton, CA)

Paulette & Eric:
I’ve searched the Internet and checked with all my sources and have found nothing about testing or recalling pet toys from China. Has anyone reading this found anything on this subject? If so, please let us know what you know by discussing it under “Comments” below.

In the meantime, here are some good sources to keep an eye on for updates on pet and human food and other product recalls:

** U.S. Food & Drug Administration Recalls, Market Withdrawals, and Safety Alerts: http://www.fda.gov/opacom/7alerts.html
** American Society for the Precention of Cruelty to Animals Pet Food Recall Resource Center: http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer?pagename=recall
** American Veterinary Medical Association’s Pet Food Recall Resources: http://www.avma.org/aa/petfoodrecall/default.asp

Thanks for bring this to our attention! /Gary
