16, the FDA released a statement on a potential pentobarbital contamination of several types of canned wet dog food manufactured by the J.M. Smucker Company. The agency warned consumers that the canned food could be harmful to pets.
"The FDA's preliminary evaluation of the testing results of Gravy Train samples indicates that the low level of pentobarbital present in the withdrawn products is unlikely to pose a health risk to pets", the agency said. As such, any can of dog food with any amount of pentobarbital is considered adulterated. These include Gravy Train, Kibbles n' Bits, Ol' Roy, and Skippy. It said it is investigating how the euthanasia drug pentobarbital got into its supply chain and is focusing on a single supplier of a minor ingredient used at one manufacturing facility.

Pentobarbital is a sedative that is used to euthanize animals and, according to the FDA statement that prompted the recall, "Pets that eat pet food containing pentobarbital can experience drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner) and inability to stand". In the case of the recalled dog food, the low doses do not pose serious health risks to pets.
"However, the presence of this substance at any level is not acceptable to us and not up to our quality standards", said the company, which is based in Orrville, Ohio. The company added that it was "extremely disappointed that pentobarbital was introduced" into its product.
