Dog Food Pulled From Shelves After Tests Find Euthanasia Drug
INDIANAPOLIS -- The dog food you have in your pantry could contain a drug used to euthanize animals.
Smucker's is recalling cans of Kibbles 'N Bits, Gravy Train, and Ol' Roy after some of them tested positive for pentobarbital.
Retailers nationwide, including Walmart, have removed the products from their shelves.
The company has apologized and says the food "is not up to their standards". What it hasn't done is explain how the drugs wound up in the food in the first place -- federal law prohibits pet food companies from using meat from euthanized animals in their products.
If you have any of the products listed below, don't feed them to your pets. Throw the food away or return it to the store for a full refund:
