The FDA is warning dog owners about store-bought bone treats.
The agency says it has received nearly 70 reports of pet illnesses and 15 deaths related to these treats.
Bone treats differ from actual butcher-type bones because they are processed and packaged as dog treats.
The most common illnesses linked to bone treats were digestive tract blockages, choking, vomiting and bleeding.
Treats listed in the injury reports included ham bones, pork femur bones, rib bones and smokey knuckle bones.
