According to some reports, this seems to becoming more of a common occurrence. This dog food maker has recalled a bunch of canned dog food from shelves and is warning consumers about them.
In a voluntary effort, J.M. Smucker Company is recalling 4 brands of 'wet' dog food as they were found to have had low levels of pentobarbital - a euthanasia drug.
WCMH - News Channel 8, a television station in Colombus, Ohio had conducted a report that the FDA plans to do an investigation into certain canned dog foods after it was brought to their attention that these dog foods contain drugs to euthanize pets.
Certain cans of Skippy, Ol' Roy, Gravy Train, and Kibbles 'N Bits were reported in the recall.
This list was sent by a well-known retail/ grocery store to their customers, concerning the items that were listed on the recall list.
According to Smuckers, the low doses of the drug is not harmful to your dog, but they are recalling the listed dog food out of precaution.
