Dog food recall: Euthanasia drug found in cans of Gravy Train, Kibbles ‘N Bits and more
It’s the latest in what has become a disturbingly common occurrence — another pet food maker has recalled a variety of canned dog food after a dangerous chemical was found in its food during a TV station’s investigation.
Low levels of pentobarbital found
Select cans of Gravy Train, Kibbles ‘N Bits, Skippy and Ol’ Roy are included in the recall.
Smuckers says the low levels of the euthanasia drug don’t pose any threat to your pet’s health. Yet the recall being undertaken “out of an abundance of caution” because certain shipments “do not meet our quality specifications.”
“The presence of this substance at any level is not acceptable to us and not up to our quality standards. We sincerely apologize for the concern this has caused,” the company notes in an email.
If you have any of the affected dog food, return it to the store with receipt for a full refund.
This latest recall follows on the heels of two others last year.
