It could be another blow to Chinese imports.

Wal-Mart quietly stopped selling two brands of dog treats after customers complained the treats sickened their dogs.

Wal-Mart has yet to announce a recall, the company saying the treats are being tested.

China does more business with Wal-Mart than it does with Canada, Russia or Australia.

The world's largest retailer started pulling two types of chicken jerky from two different Chinese importers in late July.

The company also placed a computerized block on all cash registers to prevent workers from selling the products.

There was a massive pet food recall in March, when retailers began pulling products made in China that included the chemical melamine. That's a byproduct of several pesticides.

Thousands of problems have surfaced with foreign produced products, many of them food items. The Food and Drug Administration says they check less than one-percent of the products.

American corporations have closed their US operations opting to purchase from low-wage, no environmental control counties.
