Poisoned Pet Food Being Recalled
A popular dog food brand is being pulled from shelves after testing positive for a deadly drug.
KFOX has reported that Smuckers voluntarily recalled over 30 of its pet food brands after some were found to contain pentobarbital; a drug used to euthanize animals.
After releasing the results of lab tests that identified the drug, the FDA launched an investigation. And now, just days later, Smucker’s, the owner of almost all the brands in question, is announcing a voluntary withdrawal. - KFOX
Retailers, including all Wal-Mart stores, are pulling these products after an investigation found 60% of the sampled cans, (mostly Gravy Train), contained traces of the drug.
Big Heart Brands, owned by Smuckers, makes Gravy Train, Meow Mix, Milk Bone, Kibbles’n Bits, 9 Lives, Natural Balance, Pup-Peroni, Nature’s Recipe, Canine Carry Outs, Milo’s Kitchen, Alley Cat, Jerky Treats, Meaty Bone, Pounce and Snausages.
