Recently, this firm put out a first ever informational blog to let readers know that their beloved dogs could be in jeopardy due to the dog food they are consuming. Already, there is another instance impacting the beloved canine members of the family, so we wanted to get the word out again for our readership. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has done an investigation with findings that popular brands of dog food contain a euthanasia drug! Smuckers owns the brands with the dog food brands and has already voluntarily withdrawn the products. The brands are Gravy Train, Skippy, Ol’ Roy, and Kibbles ‘N Bits. A large number of stores, including 4,700 Walmart stores, are pulling the dog foods from their shelves.
Current standards for dog food labels do not make it likely that pet owners will know what is truly being fed to their beloved furry friends. Smuckers was violating federal law that does not allow any level of euthanasia drug, pentobarbital, to be included in a pet food product. Smuckers is not answering questions on how the drug got into their dog foods, leaving investigators to wonder whether the manufacturer is using dogs for its food that have been euthanized with the drug. Until the company answers questions, this is what some would assume and that’s a very unpleasant possibility for the pet owner to take in. The bottom line is that consumers return any of these brands they have in their home to the store where it was purchased, and that their personal veterinarian be contacted for dogs that have already consumed the product.
