Wal-Mart And The China Dog Food Wars

August 21, 2007 by Douglas A. McIntyre

Wat-Mart (WMT) is the latest US firm to get embroiled in the quality problems with Chinese products. According to The Associated Press, the sweethearts at WMT have yanked Chicken Jerky Strips from Import-Pingyang Pet Product Co. and Chicken Jerky from Shanghai Bestro Trading. Their brand names almost make them sound good enough for human consumption.

Philadelphia television station WPVI reported last week that a woman claimed her 2-year-old Chihuahua died after eating Bestro Chicken Jerky Strips. But, there is no indication that the two products that WMT has taken from stores are dangerous.

Just a little precaution so that no one accuses the world’s largest retailer of selling junk.
