Gravy Train, Kibbles ‘N Bits Among Brands Recalled Because of Euthanasia Drug
Smucker's is voluntarily withdrawing shipments of some of its dog food brands amid reports that it could be tainted with traces of a drug used to euthanize animals.
The company confirmed the ingredient findings on Thursday (2/15/18) and issued a recall of several varieties of wet canned it sells under the Big Heart Pet Brands banner. The specific brands are Gravy Train, Kibble ‘N Bits, Skippy and Ol’ Roy.
In a post on the Gravy Train website they noted that “veterinarians and animal nutrition specialists” agreed the “extremely low levels” of pentobarbital, a drug largely used to euthanize animals, do not pose a threat to pets.
However, the presence of this substance at any level is not acceptable to us and not up to our quality standards.
Below is the list of recalled products. If you have cans of any of the wet dog food at home and have concerns the company suggests you contact them at 800-828-9980 or via email.
