(WRIC) — Jerky treats imported from China are still being linked to hundreds of dog deaths, according to the FDA.

Between September 2014 and December 2015 the FDA investigated 200 more reports of animals becoming sick after eating the chicken, duck and sweet potato treats imported from China. The number is lower than previous years but investigators still caution owners to be on the lookout for vomiting or other symptoms.

Since 2007, the FDA has investigated the illnesses of 6,200 dogs – including more than 1,100 deaths.Find 8News on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram; send your news tips to
