These treats still remain on the shelf for purchase at Petco, Walmart and even natural dog food stores. The FDA is currently investigating why these treats have been harming and even killing dogs, but they have not been banned. The main culprits behind the current scare (according to MSNBC) include Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brands produced by Nestle Purina PetCare Co., and Milo’s Kitchen Home-style Dog Treats, produced by Del Monte Corp.
