Certain Canned Dog Foods Recalled Due To Possible Drug Contamination

Dog owners, beware: J.M. Smucker is recalling a few of its canned dog food products after finding they could be contaminated with a drug veterinarians use to euthanize pets.

The products include Gravy Train, Kibbles 'N Bits, Ol'Roy and Skippy brands manufactured from 2016 to now, according to a statement released Friday from the Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA reports the small amount of the drug — pentobarbital — isn't likely to "pose a health risk to pets" but that it definitely shouldn't be in their food.

Side effects to be on the lookout for are drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea and an inability to stand. The FDA suggests taking your pet to the vet if you think it might have gotten sick from eating contaminated dog food.
