Posted: 12 Mar 2010 10:36 AM PST

The FDA is looking into complaints from dog owners that treats from Dynamic Pet Products is causing illness and death in their dogs.

The Food and Drug Administration is reviewing concerns that a Missouri-produced pet treat has caused serious illness or death in dogs, a spokesman said Thursday.

The FDA is looking into complaints about Real Ham Bone for Dogs, sold throughout the U.S., an agency spokesman said. If warranted, he said, it will take appropriate action and notify the public.

The product — a smoked pig femur sold as a dog treat or chew bone — is distributed under the Dynamic Pet Products label of Frick’s Quality Meats in Washington, Mo.

The company said Thursday in a statement that it was saddened to learn of the illnesses and deaths of customers’ pets, and that quality and safety remain priorities.

“That is why every package contains a label that provides detailed instructions to owners on how they can help their pets best enjoy our products,” the statement said. “We strongly encourage owners to supervise their pets with any treats or snacks.”

Here’s the rest.
