This has been going on a long time and has cropped up again.
(WCMH) — The FDA says it plans to investigate after a drug commonly used to euthanize pets was found in cans of dog food.
Washington, D.C. TV station WJLA partnered with Ellipse Analytics to test several brands of wet dog food for the drug pentobarbital. In all 62 samples of more than two-dozen brands were tested.
One brand, Gravy Train, repeatedly came back positive for pentobarbital, according to the station. Out of the 15 cans tested, nine tested positive. While the cans contained low levels of the drug, federal rules say that none is allowed. Gravy Train is made by Big Heart Pet Foods and owned by Smucker’s.
Big Heart Brands also makes Meow Mix, Milk Bone, Kibbles’n Bits, 9 Lives, Natural Balance, Pup-Peroni, Gravy Train, Nature’s Recipe, Canine Carry Outs, Milo’s Kitchen, Alley Cat, Jerky Treats, Meaty Bone, Pounce and Snausages.
Just last year, Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food recalled some lots of its Hunk of Beef product due to the presence of Pentobarbital. The FDA says Pentobarbital can affect animals that ingest it, and possibly cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, or nausea, or in extreme cases, death.
That's not unusual tbh. It's been going on for years.

No, actually there was an actual study done were they searched dog and cat DNA. There was none found at the time...at the time, but....but that pulls in the whole 4 D meats. Diseased, dying, dead and disabled.....meaning they're using diseased and dying animals that were euthanized in your wonderful dog, cat and ferret food. This issue has been in standing for many years. A couple of links for you to investigate: www.drjudymorgan.com/diseased-animal-carcasses-used-in-pet-food/
