On 1/9/2013, Milo's Kitchen chicken strips, Canyon Creek and Waggin Train chicken strips have been voluntarily recalled by the mfg for antibiotics banned in the US. They have nice names but yes they are products of China.
*On Nov 18, 2011 the FDA issued a warning on all chicken strips made in China (the third warning since 2007)
*On May 24, 2012 Time magazine news feed reported 1000 instances of illness from chicken strips made in China
The illness includes vomiting, diarrea, kidney failure and death
*On Sept 18,2012 NBC San Francisco affiliate did an investigative report on chicken strips. the report claimed that there were 2,200 cases of illness and 360 deaths linked to chicken strips from China.
What is unusual is that the FDA cannot pinpoint why the strips cause illness it could be the antibiotics in the chicken or even the chemical that makes them shine.
