More than 1,000 dogs have become ill and even died in the U.S. after eating chicken jerky treats from China.

The Food and Drug Administration has been warning owners about continued problems with the chicken jerky strips, treats and nuggets from China since November.

Three of the top brands of treats cited in complaints include "Waggin' Train" and "Canyon Creek Ranch" brands produced by Nestle Purina PetCare, and "Milo's Kitchen Home-style Dog Treats" produced by Del Monte.

FDA officials say companies are free to recall the treats at any time, but regulations do not allow for products to be removed based on complaints alone.
