Apparently some pet (dog) food brands have trace amounts of Pentobarbitol, a drug used to euthanize dogs, cats, and some horses. Federal law prohibits any amounts of this drug into the food supply, yet the FDA and the manufacturers have been lax on testing for &/or stopping it from happening. The manufacturer's have been using suppliers that are unregistered/unapproved by the FDA.....and of course everyone is pointing fingers at the other for blame. FDA to investigate after ABC7 exposes euthanasia drug in dog food Evanger's brand of canned/wet dog food made 4 dogs sick, with one dying from it. Further testing of dog food brands resulted in Gravy Train canned/wet dog food as repeatedly testing positive for the drug in small amounts.......not enough to be harmful BUT by law should be 0%. There is a dog food recall on other brands for the same reasons, all made by Big Heart Brands that is owned by Smuckers.(yes the jam people) This list is from another story taken from the one above...Popular Dog Food Brands Recalled After Repeatedly Testing Positive for Euthanasia Drug Gravy Train 22 oz. with Beef Chunks (UPC: 7910051647) Kibbles ‘N Bits canned/wet dog food • Kibbles ‘N Bits 13.2 oz.
