Pet Food Recall Expanded

Image result for kibbles and bits recall

The J.M. Smucker Company, a manufacturer of several major pet food brands, announced last week that it was recalling a number of popular pet food products after it was found the products may contain traces of pentobarbital, a drug that is often used to euthanize animals. The company states the drug does “not pose a threat to pet safety” in extremely low doses, however any trace of this drug finding it’s way into the food is concerning and dangerous.

Below, is the list of brands/styles of all the food products affected by the recall. The list includes a variety of wet canned dog food sold under a number of different brand names including Gravy Train, Kibbles ‘N Bits, Ol’ Roy, and Skippy, and are sold in a large variety of flavors and sizes. We are asking all our clients to please check your pet’s foods and make sure you are not affected.

These are the brands, styles, and sizes of the dog food affected by the recall:
