Dog Food Brands Recalled Canned Food With Euthanasia Drug

A line of canned dog food products have been recalled after traces of euthanasia drug was found.

The euthanasia drug, pentobarbital, is used in shelters and clinics to put animals to sleep but can be used as a sedative or anesthetic. The FDA released a statement about the drug being traced in Gravy Train canned dog food on Friday:

“Pets that eat pet food containing pentobarbital can experience drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner) and inability to stand. Consuming high levels of pentobarbital can cause coma and death. However, pentobarbital present in the withdrawn products is at a low level unlikely to pose a health risk to pets.”

The FDA confirmed after testing Gravy Train food samples, the results indicated the low levels of pentobarbital unlikely poses a health threat. J.M Smucker stated it asked for a voluntary recall of Gravy Train, Kibbles N Bits, Ol’ Roy and Skippy canned dog food. The company released a statement in reference to the discovery of the drug:

“We take this very seriously and are extremely disappointed that pentobarbital was introduced to our supply chain. We will continue to work closely with our suppliers and veterinarians to ensure the ingredients used in our products meet or exceed regulatory safety standards and our high-quality standards,”
