I am so very sorry you had to go through this.
PROFIT OVER LIVES!
The sure way to have a product removed from the shelves is to STOP BUYING IT.
NO PROFIT= NO REASON TO CARRY IT.
I am signing your petition and I have been signing petitions all along. I am so frustrated that I can't reach every single pet owner out there and prevent the unthinkable.
They should hold these corporation that are still putting out these products CRIMINALLY LIABLE.
I am one angry little dog.
Five days after eating just two pieces of the Waggin' Train chicken jerky dog treats I bought at my local Walgreens, my German Shepherd Heidi died.
That day, I sat at my computer crying and did a Google search for "What killed my dog?" That's when I learned -- too late -- about the ongoing investigation by the FDA, and the hundreds of stories about dogs becoming ill and dying after eating these treats.
It could be months or years before the FDA recalls the treats, which are made in China -- and in the meantime, Heidi and other dogs are dying because Walgreens and other retailers are still selling these dangerous treats. I started a petition on Change.org asking Walgreens to stop stocking these deadly dog treats. Please click here to sign my petition and protect other dogs from suffering Heidi's fate.
I knew nothing of the dangers of chicken jerky dog treats when I bought them for Heidi: there was no warning on the package or on the shelf at Walgreens.
I can't believe these dangerous treats are still being sold in stores across the country. People trust their favorite stores and companies to sell them safe products. I trusted my corner drug store. Heidi trusted me. And Heidi paid for it with her life.
Earlier this year, Terry Safranek started a petition on Change.org after her dog Sampson died, asking Nestle Purina to recall the treats. Nestle is dragging its feet -- but if Walgreens takes these treats off their shelves, fewer people will unknowingly feed their best friends dangerous treats, and other stores will have to start paying attention too.
Please help me by telling Walgreens that we need them to restore our trust in them by taking the treats off their shelves. Click here to sign my petition. When you sign, a letter will be sent to Walgreens and other top retailers that sell the treats.
Thank you for your help.
