Petco is getting rid of all cat and dog treats made in China.

The decision comes just days after the FDA issued a new warning that a thousand dog deaths may be linked to jerky pet treats imported from China.

Petco says it will remove the china-made treats from its stores by the end of the year.

The FDA has not been able to pinpoint a direct link between the treats and pet illnesses so it hasn't issued a recall.

But Petco says customers' concerns are enough to pull them from the shelves.
