I agree with the breaking of teeth and also some dogs swallow instead of spitting out pieces they chew off. I won't buy them.

Here it is-- a small section on the recalls-- http://www.ehow.com/facts_5953224_ny...ful-dogs_.html

I always supervise my guys when they chew. The toys aten't laying around for them to chew on. I give them the rubber ones after I've checked them to make sure there aren't any chunks missing. I check the toy while they're chewing on it also.

That link says that nylabones are rawhide, the bones my dogs chewed on we're not rawhide, they were a hard plastic/nylon type material.

My sister's Bulldog ate a Nylabone in chunks and had to get surgery to remove the pieces.

They then bought him bigger, harder Nylabones... upon which he grinded his teeth down to nubs! LOL

As with everything, supervise your dog and take anything away that you're uncomfortable with! I've given my dogs the edible Nylabones, but not the plastic ones. I do like puppy Nylabones for puppies, but for adult dogs, I like edible chews. Bully sticks, ears, raw meaty bones, etc.
